The South Dakota Military History Forum, according to their Facebook site, has cancelled their May, June, July and August 2020 meetings due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The report went on further to say:
"The decision to cancel meetings over the summer was not made lightly; we know that those of you who regularly attend enjoy the camaraderie as well as the topics that are addressed.
While the South Dakota Air & Space Museum will probably stay open this summer, there will be social distancing orders in place.
Moreover, given the age group of our audience, its anticipated potential attendees will probably have apprehension about large gatherings, and it would be a waste of time and effort to have presentations for just a limited number of people. As you might well imagine, preparation of a presentation is a significant endeavor, and to brief a mere dozen or so in an audience is just not a good idea, nor is it fair for the presenter.
Meetings of the South Dakota Military History Forum are scheduled to resume on Saturday, September 12, 2020.
