New Guidelines for Nominations to the RV/MH Hall of Fame

January 31st, 2013 Comments off

In order to streamline nominations to the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, Ind., the RV/MH Heritage Foundation has developed new guidelines: The nominee(s) must have been actively involved in the MH or RV industry for at least 25 years, and have a good, honorable, respectful reputation in support of the industry. He or she must also have experience in volunteer activities inside and outside the industry. Special emphasis is given to those who have furthered the cause of state and national associations as well as owners’ groups, and the RV/MH Hall of Fame itself. Nominations must be received by Oct. 31 for the following year’s class and be accompanied by three supporting letters. As MHProNews has learned, selections will be made in Jan. for the annual induction dinner in August.

Goal 90% Complete

July 16th, 2012 Comments off

Contributions to the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum have reached 90 percent of the $100,000 Ingram Family Challenge Grant. When Darryl Searer, president of the Hall, asked for a couple of angels to step forward on July 3, he got his wish: Roy Beck, retired co-founder of The Beck Corporation, and Jason Lippert, chairman of Lippert Components, Inc., each donated $10,000 and Bill Fenech, former Thor Industries executive, kicked in $5,000. With only $9,945 to be raised by the Aug. 31 deadline, Searer says, “I’m hopeful that we can reach our goal by August 6 which is the date of the Class of 2012 Induction Dinner and Annual Golf Classic. It would be a great addition to the celebration to be able to announce during those ceremonies that we have reached our goal ahead of schedule.” MHProNews.com has learned Robert ‘Boots’ Ingram got his nickname from wearing oversized boots when he was a child working in his father’s meat shop.
