Inspired by the 50th Anniversary of the Attleboro/North Attleboro Thanksgiving Day rivalry, the Attleboro Area Football Hall of Fame was formed with the idea of establishing another Thanksgiving time football tradition; an annual induction ceremony honoring former players, coaches and supporters from Attleboro, North Attleboro and Bishop Feehan high schools. Over the span of 43 years since the first annual induction ceremony in November 23, 1971, 475 members have been selected to the HOF.
HOF got together with FJ Concepts to build a website for the organization to help bring their annual event onto the web. We set up a database to catalog the past hall of famers and making that information searchable for visitors to find the biography of the inductees through first/last name, school and year graduated. Members-only area is also set up for inductees to encourage members to sign up and participate in discussion.
Another component with the HOF is its partnership with the L.G. Balfour Foundation to award scholarships to graduating seniors at the three high schools. The website is designed to provide information on the scholarship recipients and also the latest press releases of the organization.
A separate mobile site is designed to ensure information are mobile friendly while keeping the searchbility of the hall of famers database.
We continue to work closely with the organization in maintaining the website and mobile site with new inductees and scholarship recipients up-to-date each year.
Launch Date: November, 2012
As a small, non-profit organization that lacks a staff of knowledgeable web or graphic design expertise, we were in desperate need to find a partner we could trust to build our organization’s website from scratch at an affordable price. The entire crew at FJ Concepts led by Fiona and Jeon were fabulous to deal with. Our goal was to implement a website to help us communicate with our members and inform the general public about our football Hall of Fame, and FJ Concepts helped us every step of the way to achieve our goal. From start to finish FJ Concepts worked patiently with our team to provide conceptual web site designs and options to choose from based on our input and needs. They simplified the sometimes-complicated process, communicated in layman's terms, and were very easy to work with from the very beginning.
The end result was a website our organization can be proud of that helps highlight the career accomplishments of our 470+ members in a first-class manner. Throughout the entire pre-sale and post-sales cycles FJ Concepts has provided industry-leading customer service in all areas – contractual, billing, and technical support – and in a timely manner. They are thorough, honest, professional, efficient, and follow through on every detail. They take time to explain how website design works, ask all the right questions to assist in figuring out what exactly we want to achieve with the website, and helped us to think logically through the process.
We highly recommend FJ Concepts to design, build, or improve your website!
