Dear PGDF Families
It is with a heavy heart I announce that we will not be moving forward with the festival that was schedule to begin on Saturday.
Please know this was an incredibly difficult decision for us but was made due to the following factors:
School District 57 has just cancelled all events booked in their facilities, and therefore we have no facility
BC's Health Minister and BC's Health Officer recommended the cancellation of all events over 250 people
I know the disappointment and heartbreak this will cause for you and your dancers, and as a committee, and we are sickened to have made it, but the health of our community must come first.
At this time, we are not using the word cancelled and as a committee we are going to meet on Saturday to brainstorm how we might move forward with the competition in virtual ways. Please stay tuned for more information later this weekend. For clarity for those coming from out of town, you can cancel your travel plans for this week.
Please accept our sincere apologies.
Twylla on behalf of the PGDF Committee
