Jasper Lions Club Independence Day Celebration CANCELED
6/30/2020 ~ by Jasper Lions Club
As many of you may be aware the Lions Club along with the County and City Partners have concluded that out of an abundance of caution it was deemed prudent and advisable to forgo 4th of July activities for this year due to the Public Health State of Emergency as declared by the State of Georgia.
The coordinated efforts of all parties involved takes months of pre-planning and approvals which were unfortunately not able to be accommodated this year due to COVID-19. The Lions Club depends upon donations and receipts from the activities of the fair, etc., and that assists in funding other elements of the activities such as the fireworks.
In light of many unknowns that still continue, there are no planned large-group activities for the 4th of July. As disappointed as we all are, we will continue to acknowledge that the recognition and celebration of Independence Day is a concept that cannot be "cancelled", but for this year we will all have to modify our approach of celebrating this day and look forward to the next time we have together!
