To Our Dred Scott Volunteers, Supporters and
Our Freedom Awards Dinner Guests,
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Dred Scott Heritage Foundation, we are sad to inform you that due to circumstances beyond our control and the consequent local, state, and Federal governmental responses to the current coronavirus and COVID-19, the Dred Scott Freedom Awards Dinner, which was scheduled to take place March 28, 2020, at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac in MO, is officially postponed, with the intention to reschedule once we are all cleared to re-engage in these community activities once again.
This past week the Board of Directors have watched and communicated in person, via phone and by email to analyze the situations that led to this decision. With the rapid changes each day, it is no longer necessary to explain this postponement as we are all aware of the state of affairs we are facing leading up to the time we would have had our event. We are in uncharted waters but anticipate a future resolution and hope that each of you who receive this are and will continue to be well.
Everyone has been patient and even encouraging to continue earlier on until it became obvious that the inevitable is upon us. We intend to reschedule and honor our awardees at the first safe and optimal opportunity.
Please take a moment to complete the cancellation form link below to allow us to handle your registration refund in the manner you prefer and that you then attend to your travel and hotel arrangements. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance.
Look for future information on a new date for the 2020 Dred Scott Freedom Awards.
Peggy Lewis LeCompte, Dinner Chairman
Lynne M. Jackson, President
