Dear Supply Corps Community, Alumni, Family and Friends;
As many of you suspected, due to the unforeseen COVID-19 crisis, the Newport Chapter has postponed the Supply Corps’ 225th Celebratory Events scheduled for May 2020. Our immediate priority is to minimize the spread of this pandemic and safeguard the health and safety of our community. Once this threat is eradicated, we hope to reschedule these events for the fall when Newport is equally as beautiful.
We thank all of you for being such a vital part of the Newport Chapter’s efforts, and hope to celebrate this 225-year milestone sometime this fall. Until then, please stay safe and well!
