Dear neighbours,

As you all must know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, festivals, concerts community meetings and other events scheduled Since March 2020 were cancelled.   Events that attract large numbers of participants make physical distancing near impossible and increase the rist of transmission.

I am sorry to inform you that we must cancel the annual Corn Roast in Balena Park that was scheduled for September 13th.

To our sponsors who make this event possible, I thank you for your generosity. The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtably had an impact on our economy making it difficult to justify seeking out donations for this event when there is so much need in our community.

To our volunteers, I appreciate all your hard work setting up and cleaning up, as well as the safety, information and fun you provide to our those who attend.

To our dedicated community members who look forward to this annual event, I thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

This is an event we look forward to every fall.  Let’s hold onto that excitement until September 2021 when we hope to be able to organize a renewed Corn Roast.
