With heavy heart, Great Northern Exhibition fall fair cancelled

 In Letters, Opinion

Over the past year, the Collingwood Agricultural Society has considered many avenues of things they could do to keep the public involved, from a scavenger hunt, yard displays to colouring contests for the youth. We continue to strive to keep the public engaged and updated on what is going on via our website, Facebook and other social media.
It is with a heavy heart that the Collingwood Agricultural Society have had to make the decision to cancel the traditional 2021 Great Northern Exhibition for a second year. We continue to consider the health and safety of our volunteers, members of the community, our loyal sponsors, vendors and exhibitors who are very important to the Society.
The decision was made on May 27 based on the direction from the Public Health Department, Government directives regarding COVID-19 and the projected reopening schedule.
Thank you all who have supported us in our decision to cancel the 2021 Great Northern Exhibition. Stay tuned as we consider other events, showcases, etc for this year, via our website, facebook and other social media.
The decision to cancel our event is the right decision during this critical time. We are thinking of all our families and friends that have attended in the past. We look forward to safely gathering in 2022.
Thank you and stay safe!
Joanne Gregson,
Collingwood Agricultural Society.
