BURLINGTON, ON

 

The Port Nelson United Church had to cancel their Mirth and Music event; the Burlington Performing Arts Centre has had to close for the 28 days they are going to be in the Red zone of the provinces colour coded behaviour chart.

Tiered Regional approachTammy Fox, Executive Director explains: “We’ve been forced to cancel all live performances while we are in this 28 day ‘red zone’.

“It’s disappointing, but fortunately we’ve been here before this time around we are much better prepared to cope.”

All isn’t lost for the Performing Arts people.  The huge wreaths that go up each year in the windows will be up next week, the huge tree on the plaza area will go up and the Festival of Trees will take place – limited however to just ten sponsored trees.

They will be up on the 25th

“We will get through this!” said Fox.
