An Update on the Scheduling of Induction Events

While there is certainly light at the end of the tunnel, we are not going to be able to host an in-person recognition dinner in April as we had originally hoped. We are confirming a return to our normal yearly dinner, to be held Saturday, November 19, 2022.

In the meantime, we have a backlog of honorees, and we are hoping to host one or more smaller events between now and November. These convocations will focus on honoring those individuals for whom we have been unable to locate descendants, or whose descendants might not be able to attend an in-person event.

The slow emergence from the pandemic has caused uncertainty, not only with the families of potential honorees, but also with our suppliers and volunteers. The recent sale of the building that housed our North Kingstown mini-museum and workshop forced the relocation to storage of all our artifacts, equipment and supplies. The added stresses (both financial and volunteer-wise) of that move require that we take a deep breath and make the necessary adjustments to make sure that we can offer the same high-quality product you have come to expect.

In the meantime, as with all non-profits, this pandemic has taken a serious toll on our ability to fund raise. PLEASE consider a donation to help us keep our work going!
