Red Wing Collectors Society cancels summer convention
RED WING, Minn. – The Red Wing Collectors Society Board of Directors recently made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 RWCS Annual Convention scheduled for July 9-11. “The top priority of our organization is to ensure the safety and health of our membership and the Red Wing community that our members love so dearly. While this is difficult, the RWCS Board and membership are already looking forward to coming back strong for the RWCS Convention, July 8-10, 2021,” the group said in a statement. “We really hoped that we would be able to hold Convention, but unfortunately the timing is not in our favor, and a decision had to be made,” said RWCS President Paul Wichert. “There is too much to overcome from a logistical standpoint to adhere to social distancing guidelines and keep our members safe.” Members are ensuring the group survives by renewing memberships and purchasing commemoratives including an Anti-Coronavirus League mini jug. The 2020 convention commemoratives are still in production at Rowe Pottery. It has long been the tradition of the RWCS that the Commemorative is unveiled on the first day of the Convention. In keeping with this tradition, the Society will share the commemorative on July 9. The unveiling will take place on social media as well as the group’s website. RWCS Members and anyone who joins the club in the coming weeks can continue to order Commemoratives and Anti-Coronavirus League mini jugs until Saturday, July 11. www.redwingcollectors.org.
