It was decided to move the awards banquet to the Sunday after the Superbowl. The month of January is a tough month to have a supper because of National Football League playoff’s. Holding the banquet in February may make it possible for more members to attend.

The first supper of 2020 will be held September 6 at the VFW hall in Jay, with social hour at 5 p.m. and supper at 6 p.m.
