It is with deep regret that we are canceling/postponing this years Medal of Honor Host City Program event. Due to the coronavirus, our city has limited group gatherings to 50 or less people for the next 8 weeks. Our guest list alone exceeds that in every portion of our event, therefore we are going to follow this guidance and cancel the event scheduled for April 15-19,2020.
We will be meeting soon to make a decision on how to proceed forward. Please stay tuned for updates. Thank you for your support and patronage.
