The vision of a beautiful new building that displays historic snowmobiles and memorabilia is almost ready to happen at the Snowmobile Hall of Fame in St. Germain, Wis. With the Classic Sled Roundup weekend festivities just one week away, the SHOF hopes to bridge the final gap to its building fundraising goal in hopes of hosting a groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday, May 27.
“We are so close to our goal of $350,000 that we can taste it,” said Craig Marchbank, SHOF President. “Thanks to so many generous donors, we’re on the cusp of being able to break ground on what will be a magnificent 60 x 100-ft., 2-story building adjacent to our current building.
“With one last push, and a few spare dollars from those who are able, we’ll put shovels in the ground for this important showcase of snowmobile history.”
To get there, the SHOF is asking for your help. A donation to the building fund this week will help ensure that the Hall’s vast collection of snowmobiles, displays, archives and history will be seen in its entirety, free of charge to snowmobile fans who come to see many of the most historic machines from the past five-plus decades.
The 14th Annual Classic Sled Roundup May 27-28, 2017, includes vintage snowmobile displays and premier swap meet in a fun, festive atmosphere in the St. Germain Town Park.
Donations can be made quickly and easily at the SHOF website www.snowmobilehalloffame.com. Building plans can be seen there as well.
“Give what you can this week,” Marchbank encouraged. “If our goal is recognized, then we will host a ground breaking ceremony at 3:00pm on Saturday at the Hall and ask everyone to join us for what will be a historic event.”
