Gardiner Day Cancelled for the First Time
By The Gazette Editorial Committee
From Issue 47: Summer 2020
Due to the unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Gardiner Day Committee has voted unanimously to cancel Gardiner Day this year. It was scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2020. Instead, we have shifted our focus to supporting the community in these times of need. We have also voted unanimously to donate $1,000 to Helping Hands Food Pantry, and $500 to the Washbourne House, from our past fundraising efforts.
We hope to have some socially-distanced community events organized for September, but the certainty of our plans will depend on how the pandemic is affecting our community as the end of Summer approaches.
Please follow us on Facebook at Gardiner Day New York for all the latest updates. Thank you for your support and understanding.
