The XCSF Board of Directors met on March 31st and decided to reschedule the Hall of Honor Dinner and Induction Ceremony, along with the Silent Auction, until Saturday, August 29, 2020. The Board considered a number of factors and tried to find a workable date. Members considered the current restrictions on group events, travel and school closings, along with the health and safety of all of the attendees. Since Tecumseh Elementary School is the site for the dinner and ceremony, the group is waiting to until the school buildings re-open in mid-August and the staff has time to prepare for the event.

The Board of Directors of the Xenia Community Schools Foundation thanks the members of the community for their support and understanding.
