The 20th Annual Callies Awards, a Celebration of Exceptional Women, was supposed to be a special anniversary celebration. This was originally scheduled for March 26, in The Gettysburg Hotel Ballroom and then postponed to Oct. 1.

After much thought and disappointment, the Callie Committee has decided to cancel the 2020 Callie Awards. Several factors went into the committee’s decision. First and foremost is the public health and safety of our award recipients, their family and friends, and those who would have worked to put on this event.

Nancy Lilley is a the mission enhancement director at the YWCA Gettysburg and Adams County and member of the Callie Awards Committee.
