On Saturday evening April 6, 2013 the second class of the Waterville Valley Hall of Fame will be inducted at the Waterville Valley Resort Conference Center.

This year’s inductees include Franz Dubach, the long time founder and owner of the William Tell Restaurant. Ralph and Grace Bean, the owners of the Waterville Inn and the 509 acres of land in Waterville Valley back in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s. WBZ-TV4 Anchor and longtime property owners, Jack and Marci Williams, and Volvo with Frank Gaffney for their 20 year partnership with the Waterville Valley Resort and their substantial contributions to the Jack Williams Ski Race for Wednesday’s Child.

 Bob Fries stated, “I’m particularly excited about this years inductees and the impact they have had through the years in shaping the culture of Waterville Valley.”

 With over 70 names submitted for this year’s induction, it was once again a challenging task for the committee to pick the top four. The nice thing is with so many great candidates left to be selected, the Hall of Fame will go on for many years to come.

 “Our 2nd Annual Hall of Fame event will have all the energy our first Hall event had,” exclaimed Tom Gross, Jr., Valley business owner and event emcee, “It will be such a great night of camaraderie, story telling and reminiscing, you will not want to miss it!”

Here’s a closer look at this years inductees. 

Franz Dubach had such a huge following at the William Tell it will be quite the night as people reflect back on his cheese fondue, his steak masion, his escargot, the William Tell salad, or the loin of lamb. Then there was the award winning bundnerfleisch mit kase und brot! During World Cup ski races you would always find the European teams dining at the William Tell. So many memories, such great food, such a worthy inductee! We were so lucky to have Franz and the William Tell in the region for so long.

Ralph and Grace Bean leased the Waterville Valley Inn in 1946, and then in 1948 they bought the Inn and the 509 acres on the Valley floor. Ralph was a ski school director, an Inn Keeper, a Town Clerk, and they were both selectmen. Grace wrote the book Town at the End of the Road, a history of Waterville Valley. They both loved Waterville Valley and were the early architects of this beautiful resort.

Jack and Marci Williams began skiing in Waterville Valley in the mid 70’s when Jack became Anchor at WBZ-TV4 in Boston. In 1983 he bought a home here and began the Jack Williams Ski Race for Wednesday’s Child raising millions of dollars for special needs adoption. On his broadcasts he mentioned Waterville Valley thousands of times through the years and has been without a doubt the greatest celebrity endorser of Waterville Valley ever! With Marci’s support and guidance the Jack Williams event became the blueprint on how to do successful fundraising.

Volvo, represented by Frank Gaffney and Rick Bryant have been partners of the Waterville Valley Resort for over 20 years, the longest partnership in the history of the Waterville Valley Resort. They have raised well over 1 million dollars for special needs adoption through the Jack Williams Ski Race for Wednesdays Child in Waterville Valley. By donating a new Volvo each year, and selling raffle tickets to raise money, it’s always an exciting time when the lucky winner is picked at the Waterville Valley Conference Center during the events reception.

Tom Gross stated, “It’s an honor to be included in recognizing all of these wonderful people who have contributed so much to the enjoyment of everyone who visits, lives, skis and rides at Waterville Valley Resort.”
