Events & RSVPs

Guidelines

The WRSSAR holds regular events throughout the year. These events are open to members, their families, friends and the community at large. We endeavor to make these events both fun and educational. We look forward to seeing you there. If you have ideas for future events, please do send them to us: wrssar.communications@gmail.com

  • RSVPs are required for all events. We accept online payments at the time of your reservation or you can pay at the door (cash, check or credit card). While we would prefer non-members to pay in advance, that is not a requirement.
  • Cancellations must be made in writing or by phone, at least, 72 hours ahead of time.

Online RSVP Service

You can RSVP (no payment required) or Pre-Pay for any event by clicking the appropriate box below. Feel free to contact us with questions.





Please note: Due to venue policies, if you RSVP and do not pre-pay, but then fail to attend the event, we will need you to reimburse us the full cost of your ticket since the venue will charge us for your meal whether you attend or not.

Annual WRSSAR Oration Contest and judging of the Poster & Brochure contests
Apr 6 @ 11:45 am – 1:45 pm

SAVE THE DATE:
This year, we will hold our annual Oration Contest in-person.  The last 2 years, it has been virtual due to covid.
We will also be judging our elementary school poster contest and middle school brochure contest.

We are still working out the details.  We intend to hold the event at a very nice location but it will be a more casual affair due to an expected smaller turnout (residual covid concerns).

Please check back for more details.  We will unveil a major new Youth Outreach program for 2023 sometime later this year.  The new and improved event was supposed to be unveiled in 2020 but it is on hold until we believe that covid concerns will not effect turnout.

Thank you.
