On Tuesday evening March 10, Wilmington College announced that it is suspending all activities from March 16 to March 30. This of course, includes our planned banquet on March 20. Given the highly fluid nature of the COVID-19 epidemic it does not seem practical to reschedule our event. The college’s press release makes it clear that even the planned restart of the college on March 30 is only tentative. Katie Ubry-Terrell and Dicka Nye are working out the details of providing refunds for those who have already sent in registration fees.

I am saddened by this development but cancellation is, I believe, our wisest course of action. Please keep informed on how you can keep yourself safe in this uncertain time. I can recommend the following website for more information:
