The Beaverton Lions Club has cancelled its Canada Day celebrations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organization made the announcement in a Facebook post Friday (April 17) afternoon.
“Beaverton Lions Club regrets that it must cancel the 2020 Canada Day celebrations. The safety and well being of our community members and volunteers is of the utmost importance to us all and with the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and outlook for them to be continuing, our Canada Day committee members had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 event,” the post reads.
“Our sincere apologies to all the families, we will be back for Canada Day 2021!”
