RE: 2020 National Belton Family Reunion
To Whom It May Concern:
May this letter reach you in good spirits throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. My prayer is for everyone to remain safe and adhere to the CDC's mandate to practice social distancing, washing of hands, keeping your hands from your face, and staying home if you are sick. I know this is a stressful time, mentally, emotionally, physically, and for some, financially. This pandemic will also pass, however, we all need to remain steadfast and continue to "shelter in place," if you are not already doing so.
In light of COVID-19, the National Board has made the decision to cancel the 2020 National Belton Family Reunion meeting. As we are mandated by the constitution and bylaws, we will have to return to South Carolina in 2021, as this will be the third year. During the General Meeting in 2021, the DMV Chapter will be given first choice of hosting the 2022 reunion, since they were not able to host the 2020 reunion.
We know this pandemic has changed life dramatically, however, we also know God is still God and through faith in Him, no pandemic or other natural tragedy, will overtake our family. Be sure to keep in contact with your family members as well as with your friends during this time. A friendly word is all someone may need to keep them from "going over the edge." Remember to be kind to one another and remain patient with others.
Also, we will hold National Board nominations during the 2021 reunion, so be on the lookout for more information. If you have already sent in a registration or completed your registration on line, refunds will be forthcoming. If you have already made reservations to the hotel, Courtyard Marriott Alexandria Pentagon South, please contact them to cancel your reservation(s). We are also working with the hotel for a seamless process. You may reach the hotel at (855) 878-3694. Please reference BELTON FAMILY REUNION.
Thank you in advance for your patience while this process is taking place.

President, National Belton Family Reunion
