Special Notice about March 14th Forged in Iron and Bone Program and Reception

 

Dear members and friends of The Catoctin Furnace Historical Society,

We were very much looking forward to sharing the results of our research with you and unveiling the faces of the enslaved during our Forged In Iron and Bone event scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020.

After much consideration and based on the rapidly evolving situation surrounding the spread of COVID-19, we feel it is safest and most prudent to postpone the event.

We are hoping you will be able to join us Wednesday, May 6, 2020 from 6-9 pm at The Delaplaine Arts Center for the rescheduled program. Your admission fee will be applied to the new event.  Dr. Douglas Owsley, Cheyeny McKnight, Elayne Bond Hyman, Elizabeth Comer, Christopher Gardiner, and David Key have all confirmed their attendance on May 6. 
If you cannot join us on Wednesday, May 6, you may donate your admission to someone of your choice. Just let us know the new name. Or, you can allow us to provide the ticket to someone who could not afford a ticket. Your ticket price will then be considered a donation to the historical society and you will receive a receipt for the cost.

If you wish to receive a refund, please contact Elizabeth Comer at 443-463-6437 or ecomer@catoctinfurnace.org

Thank you for your support and understanding.  It is very much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Theresa Donnelly
