Hall of Fame Members -

Due to the COVID19 pandemic and the subsequent “Safer at Home” order by Gov. Evers, the weekly Madison Hall of Fame meetings and luncheons must be cancelled until further notice. 

The “Safer at Home” order is in effect until at least April 24.  The earliest possible date for our next luncheon will be April 28th but even that is unlikely.  Remember that our Club follows the schedule of the Madison School system. If school is cancelled, our luncheons are cancelled as well.

Please stay safe and keep healthy during these unusual and difficult times!
