MAY 18 UPDATE – While the 50th Anniversary full blown Yarrow Days celebration will wait until next year, there is a movement for aq smaller scaled down version for 2020. Phase 2 of the COVID Economic recovery program will roll in this week. So Yarrow Days 2020 organizers have come up with an idea.
Lend A Helping Hand.
We are looking for some volunteers to help make cut out hand prints for decorating at the Pioneer Park on Saturday, June 6th to make our community more festive for a smaller but together in spirit Yarrow Days!
We have given the paper supply to the Inspired Arts store (42333 Yarrow Central). If you go in and ask for Leigh she will give some to you. Bring it home, cut out hand prints and return to the store by Friday, May 29th!
We appreciate any help we can get! Thank you so much in advance!
* Inspired Arts will be open on Wednesday til Sunday this week from 10am to 5pm.
APRIL 17 UPDATE – The organizing committee for the 50th anniversary of Yarrow Days (June 6 and 7) , had to make the painful decision on Friday.
Wait until next year.
Carol Margaret Bell with Yarrow Days 2020 on Facebook stated: The difficult decision has been made to cancel Yarrow Days for this year. Risks to the public of hosting a large gathering during the covid-19 pandemic are just too high. The committee will reconvene in the fall to pick up where we left off planning the 50th celebration for all to enjoy.
ORIGINAL STORY – FEBRUARY 11 – Who’s excited for Yarrow Days 2020?! Look at the size of this planning committee – it takes a village to raise a village. It may be February but it takes a lot of work to put Yarrow Days together.
