Oyster roast postponed
The Mary Ball Washington Chapter of the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge oyster roast, initially scheduled for January 24, has been postponed due to the governor’s directive regarding COVID-19 restrictions. Rescheduling is dependent on the lifting of these restrictions.
Burns Night event canceled
The Kilmarnock & District Pipe Band has canceled its annual Burns Night event normally held at the end of January.
Because of event restrictions, rising infection numbers, and the desire to maintain safety for patrons and band members, the band made its decision based on current health recommendations.
