The 48th annual in-person Pioneer Days has officially been cancelled, as decided during the VCPRD monthly board meeting on Monday, August 24th. This decision was made due to the rising numbers of COVID-19 cases in the region, concerns over the ability to effectively enforce social-distancing and sanitation efforts as mandated by the Governor’s Executive Orders throughout the duration of the event, and the overall health risk to our volunteers. This decision was not made lightly, however, the health and well-being of our community is of upmost importance. Stay tuned as we currently work on a virtual Pioneer Days option for all to enjoy. We appreciate your patience, understanding and support during these challenging times.
