The City of Marion and Marion Utilities have officially canceled the annual Earth Day event for this year. Organizers were going to reschedule the annual spring event for the fall, but with continued uncertainty regarding the pandemic and low rate of response from vendors, everyone involved agreed to wait until next year.
Parks & Recreation has posted the following message to social media followers, “It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that our Earth Day event has officially been cancelled. With all of the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and how things will be in the fall, we have decided that it is safer to just wait until next year. Sorry friends! We hope to be back in April 2021 with an event that is bigger and better than ever! Until then, keep loving the earth and protecting it, because we only have one planet to call home! Thanks to everyone that was planning to participate this year. We’ll keep in touch!”
If you would like to be involved in the April 2021 event, please reach out to us through a private message on the Gardens of Matter Park Facebook Page.
