It is with great disappointment that the 2020 annual Village Picnic scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2020 will not be held this year. It takes a great deal of planning to host the picnic and planning occurred up until the last possible moment to make it happen safely. We considered alternative formats, developed COVID-19 safety plans, examined alternative dates, and definitely had the desire to bring the community together in some format for the annual Picnic.
Given the status of the pandemic, ability to social distance, necessary safety measures, traditional picnic amenities, timing in relation to the school year, community contact tracing, and many more considerations, it became very difficult to host a safe even that you would consider worthy of our traditional Village picnic. Ultimately, the safety of the community, volunteers, vendors, and staff is our number one priority, and current circumstances just do not make it possible to host the event this year. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you on our starting line on September 11, 2021.
