** CANCELLED **
Due to the current COVID-19 health pandemic and in consideration of everyone’s health, the Board of Directors have decided to cancel the R. Atkinson Fox Society Convention scheduled for Bloomington, Illinois in July. We hope conditions will have sufficiently improved by then, but do not want to chance the health and safety of attendees.
Thank you for your understanding. The May issue of Fox Tales will be coming out in several weeks.
