A formal dinner to honor the recipients will be held at the Washington Brewery Banquet Hall. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 6:45 p.m.
Tickets are $50 per person with tables of eight available. Reservations may be made by mailing a check payable to the WINGS Educational Foundation, Hall of Honor, P.O. Box 203, Washington, MO 63090.
