Spencer Awards Dinner Postponed to 2021
In light of the recent surges in COVID, and for the safety and health of all our wonderful supporters, we have decided to cancel any attempt to hold the Cincinnatus Spencer Awards Dinner in 2020 and wait until 2021. Our committee and the Hilton have worked together on a date and we are reserving MAY 12, 2021 for the Spencer Dinner in the Hall of Mirrors.
While we are all hoping that by then there will be a vaccine or viable treatment to curb the virus, we will be holding this event in person, hybrid or virtual in accordance with CDC guidelines.
Our awardees of 2020 have been notified and will be honored in 2021 – with no restrictions on numbers we hope! We lost the opportunity to celebrate Marian Spencer and Cincinnatus on their 100th birthdays – so we will celebrate 101 next year!
Thank you for your understanding and patience. We look forward to a wonderful event on MAY 12, 2021. Put it on your calendar please!
