April Public Events Cancelled

To comply with state and federal guidelines, we are cancelling two public events scheduled in April:

While we look forward to supporting our community through these and other public events each year, we believe that the best way forward at this time is to regroup and offer these annual events again in the future.

We encourage everyone to support local businesses. Where possible, support our local restaurants by ordering take-out or delivery. The vehicles spotlighted at Touch-A-Truck are operated by first responders and essential public workers. Please take a moment to say “thank you” to these groups as they work extra hard to support us through this health crisis.
