Dear friends and neighbors,
In light of the critical risk level of Eastern Equine Encephalitis in our area, and the closure of town property at 6:00 pm, we regret to inform you that the 2019 Marion Town Party is cancelled.
This decision to cancel rather than reschedule to an earlier time of day was made after reviewing past Town Party events when moving the start time for similar reasons was necessary. We can assure you that this decision was not made lightly.
While the Town Party is a beloved end of summer event, protecting the health and safety of those attending, along with our many volunteers is the primary reason for this decision.
On behalf of the entire committee, we wish to thank our sponsors and donors for their support, and all of you for your understanding.
We hope to see all of you in 2020!
Christopher Berg, Chairman
Marion Town Party Committee
