''The Canadian Pageant Hall of Fame''

History and Information of the Canadian PageantHall of Fame

The 1970 Canadian Pageant Hall Of Fame organization is credited to the

Founder, President and CEO - Sir Herman Silver along with his wife Buallah.

They were married in Calgary AB, some 60 years ago. Presently residing

in Vancouver BC. In 1960, Sir Herman Silver won the Local Pageant

Regal Award for "Best Pageants Events", in fact also "The Circle of Friends Award".

This organization was created to honor indviduals whose services to the Pageant

Industries has been deemed to be extraordinary.

To name a few of his Associates supporter and Staff, they were:

-Judith Muir/TO, she was his Vice-President and Pageant Producer.

-Edouard Devon Delaney/TO, he was his Assistant Manager.

-Raymond Welford/BC, he was his Executive Director.

-Paul V. Godfry/TO, he was his Event Chairman and Councilor.

-Maevene Lahowy/BC, she was his Executive planning Director.

-Robert Dunn/BC, he was his Regional Executive Director.

-Roy Drayer/Sault-Ste-Marie, On, he was his Correspondence Assistant.

-Vance Ridges/PEI, he was his Event Coordinator and Community Leader.

Sir Herman Silver was affiliated with the Cleo Production Division and the

Warren Production Ltd until 1992. Every five (5) years, he had the support of

numerous Canadian Pageant Director members who supported him with the

nominations for the Canadian Pageants Hall Of Fame. The Gala Ceremony

was always in collaboration with a Local Pageant Event. Celebrating success

is one of the most exciting highlights of being in the Pageant industries.

The Canadian Pageant Hall Of Fame has provided a platform for dedicated

pageant individuals to be recognized for their outstanding and professional

accomplishments. It sanctioned various awards all related to commitments.

This Award is available to Female or Male, indeed to former and present

pageant directors, executive producers-directors, former pageant winners,

furthermore committee group members, pageant Judges, and last

but not least pageant Presidents and Vice-Presidents. Any of the above

who have planted a pageant involvement seed and made it flourish.

After 40 decades, I sincerely feel that this Award compliments a valuable

pageant recipient who has brought so many pageant communities together.

As a result, through her/his services, support and dedication. Thus, in 1970

with no Website available it remained an isolated Gala to several Communities.

The Canadian Pageant Hall Of Fame was celebrated in various Cities in Canada

only every five (5) years in conjunction with the Victory Party of a Local Pageant Event.
