COVID cancels Collegeport Day

   Collegeport Day 2020 is cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. 
   Collegeport Day celebrates the founding of the Town of Collegeport on May 25, 1908. 
   A homecoming celebration has been held every year since 1908 and is now observed on the last Saturday in May, said Collegeport resident G.W. Franzen.
   Since 1945, a covered dish meal featuring barbecued beef prepared by local chefs has been hosted at the Mopac House Community Center. 
      Side dishes, salads and desserts prepared by guests always complete the meal. 
   “2020 is the first year since its founding that the community and friends will not gather, but are encouraged to reflect on past celebrations and to remember those who are no longer with us. 
   “We hope to resume this long-standing tradition in May 2021,” Franzen added.
