Update on the RWCS 2020 Convention
May 5, 2020, from the RWCS Board of Directors

The Red Wing Collectors Society has heard from both members and non-members on the status of the 2020 RWCS Convention. The RWCS Board met this past week and agreed to continue our plans for our July Convention. 

So there is no change to our plans as detailed in the April newsletter and an email we sent to each current member in April.  Non-members, of course, didn’t receive these.  We invite them to join the RWCS so they will be in the loop rather than passing on rumors that they heard from a ‘friend of a friend’.

Local, state, and federal regulations may cause the convention to get postponed, but until you hear otherwise from this board, we continue to plan for our July convention with the expectation that it will be held.  We know that the format will change to accommodate social distancing and other regulations that may be in place at that time. 

We appreciate all the members who are supporting the RWCS during this time through renewing their memberships, purchasing commemoratives and the coronavirus jug, and continuing to register for Convention.  Special thanks to the many of our members who have made cash donations to help support the RWCS. 

If plans for the convention change, the Board will communicate that with our members via email, our website and Facebook page, and newsletter.

Stay Safe,

Angela Shefveland, Secretary
