What is the Livonia Hall of Fame?
The 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame was founded by Bill Joyner in 2005 to recognize and honor individuals who have dedicated a portion of their lives to bettering the town they live or work in.
Ever since the first Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in 2005, the first Thursday in October has become a date that is circled in bright red on the calendars of many Livonia residents. This event has been the gathering place for an incredible community of leaders, creative thinkers and innovators, the source of so much of what has been given to Livonia since our incorporation as a Township in 1835 and as a City in 1950.
Induction into the 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame is conferred on those individuals whose vision helped shape our community, and whose work and deeds have advanced the good name, image and reputation of our hometown. Their contributions in Education, the Arts, Civil Rights, Healthcare, Business, Law, Sports, Government, Volunteerism and History have enhanced quality of life and helped define all that is good about Livonia.
With their induction into the Hall of Fame, the singular efforts of these individuals will forever be recorded as playing a significant role in challenging future generations to raise the bar of excellence. This commission carries with it a responsibility to be Livonia’s continued “ambassadors” of goodwill and fellowship around the world.
Everyone who has lived, shopped or played in Livonia should give pause to thank these individuals who gave their time and energy, so that those who call Livonia home might have the opportunity to enjoy the best of Livonia, its institutions, culture and heritage.
We invite you to join us for the next 1835 Livonia City Hall of Fame. Just circle your calendar for the first Thursday in October.
