After much discussion with the executive committee and in response to Governor Cooper's announcement regarding large gatherings, this year's Spring Symposium is being cancelled. There are plans in the making to have the silent auction available in a virtual format. We will keep you updated on that effort in the coming weeks. The HSM Raffle tickets will still be available on our website as well as through HSM's website.
I know this news comes as a disappointment as the Symposium is a cherished spring tradition for many. Please know how much we appreciate your ongoing support of the Auxiliary and the Mint Museum. As you will see in the image below, our fundraising efforts allow for programming and acquisitions year after year. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the online silent auction. And above all else, I hope each and every one you remain healthy and well.
