The Harbor Country Chamber of Commerce will cancel its Spring Break-Out Party and Chamber Guide Unveiling scheduled for Thursday, March 26, 2020, due to concerns surrounding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
“In light of the rising number of COVID-19 cases, including those in Michigan, and Governor Whitmer’s state of emergency declaration on March 10, we have determined that we must cancel the event,” said Board President Jen Thompson. “We have an obligation to be a responsible community member, and that means making the health and well-being of our attendees, our staff, and all of our families and colleagues our highest priority.”
A full refund will be issued to anyone who has purchased a ticket for the event. Refund checks will be mailed by March 20, 2020.
The Chamber is determining how Harbor Country Guides will be distributed to businesses throughout the area. Guides will not be available before April. An update on distribution will be provided as more information is available.
“We look forward to hosting the event next spring on the occasion of the Chamber’s 40th anniversary,” Thompson said.
