Our Organization

The Rhode Island Reds Heritage Society was formed in 2001 to honor and to preserve the fabled 51-year history of the Reds.

The organization accomplishes this mission by:

  • Acquiring and organizing a large and loyal membership to share, foster and promote the team's glorious history
  • Collecting Reds memorabilia and artifacts that represent the team's rich heritage
  • Honoring past Reds players, administrators and others once associated with the team
  • Promoting youth hockey by organizing skills camps and recognizing youth hockey standouts

A New Partnership

The Heritage Society hosted its Grand Finale Reunion of former players and fans on Aug. 21, 2022, at the elegant Rhodes on the Pawtuxet ballroom. This event honored former Reds players and other Rhode Islanders who made contributed so much to the game we love. Scroll down foir video of the event.

The event also cemented our partnership with the Rhode Island Hockey Hall of Fame, which had hosted its 2022 Induction Ceremony the night before. The Heritage Society is now working with the Hall of Fame toward our common goal: to preserve and showcase the rich history and heritage of the game of hockey in our state while recognizing the accomplishments and contributions of players, coaches, administrators, officials and teams.

That effort began with the installation of the Hall’s downtown Providence displays and interactive “Wall of Fame” at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, which feature images and videos showcasing many of the greatest names in Rhode Island hockey history.

Our next objective is building a Museum to pay perpetual tribute to the Reds and RI hockey.
