April 9, 2020 – Update Letter to National Gathering Registrants – click here to read
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the cancellation of our National Presbyterian Women’s Gathering 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Yesterday, the Planning Team had a long conference call where we discussed all possibilities and after much consideration and prayer, we decided that the health and safety of our participants was most important! We felt that with a high percentage of the group attending the conference in the vulnerable age bracket that we would be irresponsible to bring such a group together, in case even one person became ill.
In due time, we will send everyone a full refund of your registration fee. We hope all these can be processed within the next couple of weeks.
If you made reservations at the Sheraton Hotel or the Best Western, please be in touch with the hotel and cancel your reservation, as soon as possible. Their phone number is 1-800-668-0101.
If you have booked your flights, I hope the following sites may be helpful to you in getting a full refund without penalty.
