Each year, the Bristol Tramps host a sports reunion dinner where individuals are recognized for their athletic achievements in playing or supporting Bristol athletics. Awards are made in honor of notable Bristol sports figures including Harp Broderick, Bill Garrett, Chuck McCarthy, Lydia Jabs Bailey, Ron Choiniere, Ed Lodovico, Tony Savino and in 2017 the newly named; Coach Dan Valerio Committee Award and a Team Award are also presented.
A program long enough to cover the subject (but brief enough to be interesting) evolved over the early years. The event is held on a Friday night in April. An invocation and dinner kick off the evening along with a welcome from the Mayor of Bristol, and the presentation of awards with the reunion usually ending near 10:00 p.m..
In 2008, then Executive Director, Tony Savino (Toastmaster) passed those duties to Secretary, Maryellen Holden, who does a great job keeping the night entertaining and the event on time.
