We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Jaybirds day event.
Our primary concern is always the responsibility we feel towards the health and wellbeing of our community members (Jaybirds, their supporters, and volunteers alike).
While a fife & drum event isn’t called out anywhere in the guiding principles for reopening, it has characteristics that health experts have ranked as moderate to high risk. The state requirements for reopening require more resources (volunteers, materials, space, etc.) than we possess. There are also weekly changes in travel restrictions for folks who reside outside the state.
This is not a decision that was taken lightly and we’re looking forward to when the conditions change so that we can resume the celebrations of our community members – Jaybirds, Juniors, and everyone in between.
