The Virginia 2020 Fall Court with the appearance of Dr. Dan Roberts will not be held in October, and Dr. Roberts’ presentation (covered here) will be moved to 2021. Current plans include a regular luncheon in February that is held at the Commonwealth Club in downtown Richmond.
Governor Charles Grant says: “The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Virginia is disappointed to again have to cancel one of our popular annual traditions, but the safety of our members and guests is paramount. We now look to February 2021 and the Cy Nicholas Luncheon at The Commonwealth Club as our next opportunity to gather and enjoy the company of fellow Warriors and guests.”
In 2019, the Virginia Society celebrated 125 years of continuous Fall Courts since its founding. This year’s cancellation is the first in its history.
