Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and The Hogs and Heroes Foundation…
Brothers and Sisters,
Effective IMMEDIATELY, all public events held, or sponsored by the Foundation and any of our Chapters are hereby suspended until further notice. This action is being taken due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
As a Foundation, we must protect our members and those we serve. Please take every precaution to protect yourselves and your families. We will re-evaluate this issue in the next week. Until then we are asking Chapters to leave your events posted on the MeetUp but edit the titled to POSTPONED or CANCELED.
