2018 Induction Ceremony Cancelled – To Be Rescheduled


We just got a call from Sentry. Due to weather, they have cancelled all events/services at the Theater, MUSE, PJ’s and Sentry World for Saturday and Sunday…including our event.

Cancelled: The WCHF Induction Ceremony and Luncheon, tomorrow – April 14th has been cancelled.

We have already contacted key individuals from each of the Induction Groups (see below). 

This has now turned into a major effort just to inform everyone. We will miss many who had not registered.

We will spend the day trying to contact people who have planned to attend via phone trees, e-mails and personal calls using the Registration List, EventBrite register, contacting Inductee groups, speakers, Board Members, etc.

George Meyer: George will contact the Meyer Family and Friends, the CLC group and WWF Affiliates.

Charlotte Lukes: Charlotte, Tim Stone and Roy Thilly will contact the Door County group.

Arlie Schorger: Stan Temple and Michael John Jaeger will contact WSO Affiliates and the UW-Madison College of Agricultural and Life Sciences community.

They will try to inform their party via Phone Trees and e-mails.

Eventbrite: We will also try to use the Eventbrite data base to e-mail those who registered on-line.

Possible Reschedule Dates

Reschedule: Sentry has offered to reschedule for May 12th, 19, or 26.

Will will need to check with Inductees, speakers, others to decide which date might be most appropriate.

Sorry. Stay tuned for future updates through the WCHF blog.

Due to travel safety, this is probably for the best!
