Chartered in 1967, the Capital Area Chapter is one of 30 community-based chapters of the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame.

Geographically, our chapter encompasses Harrisburg and its east shore.

The purpose of the Chapter is to recognize athletes, coaches and administrators who have brought lasting fame and recognition to the Greater Harrisburg area.

Beginning with its inaugural Class of Hall of Famers in 1967, the Chapter has immortalized 401 men and women for their accomplishments in sports.

The Chapter’s annual 52nd Hall of Fame induction banquet will be held on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the Red Lion Hotel Harrisburg East, 4751 Lindle Road, Harrisburg.

Chapter membership is open to all. With more than 400 members, the Capital Area Chapter ranks among the largest of the state’s 30 chapters.

New life memberships are now available, too.

Membership meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month, except for July and December, at Post 730 of the Penbrook American Legion, 3813 Walnut St., Harrisburg, Pa. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, November’s meeting always is held on the third Wednesday.
