Sports Hall of fame to Honour Belleville McFarlands

April 4 & 5, 2009

April 2009 will be the 50th anniversary of that event. To honour that winning team, The Belleville Sports Hall of Fame is planning a special anniversary weekend April 4th-5th. Fans will be able to meet the players again at a special reception featuring a collection of McFarland memorabilia and see the release of a documentary and book on this remarkable Canadian hockey club.

On Saturday evening, the feature documentary video of the Macs will be released at the Empire Theatre in Belleville. Aaron Bell, who has written the history of the Belleville Bulls and Classics of the Canadian Hockey League will release the History of the McFarlands at that time. Proceeds from the sale of the documentary and book will be used to construct a permanent exhibit on the Belleville McFarlands and other inductees in the Belleville Sports Hall of Fame.

Tickets for the Empire Theatre, 321 Front Street, Belleville, can be purchased through the box office at the theatre and at (613) 969-0099. Tickets can be purchased online as well through the Empire Theatre website at:
