WAYNE – With the Wayne Area Economic Development (WAED) Annual Banquet traditionally scheduled for the final Sunday in January, the event has been postponed until later this year.

According to a release from WAED, the banquet will take place on Sunday, May 23 at the Beaumont Concert and Event Hall in Wayne.

WAED has determined that a postponement will help protect the health and safety of guests, businesses, volunteers and the Wayne community.

The “Avoid The three C’s” campaign encourages all Nebraskans to: 1) Avoid Crowded places; 2) Avoid Close contact and 3) Avoid Confined spaces.
