2021

Honors presentation

Sunday, September 12, 2021

For the first time in its 30-year history, the Silver Circle Honors presentation scheduled for 2020 had to be postponed because of the covid pandemic.

We are now planning a virtual celebration for Sunday, September 12, 2021 for those who were going to be inducted into our prestigious Silver Circle in 2020. Congratulations to our inductees!

The exact time for the virtual ceremony will be released at a later time.
