Bovina Bicentennial Celebration, Update 17

Most of you will have heard that the Bicentennial Celebration has been postponed. Here's the official announcement:

It is with great regret that we have decided to postpone the Bovina Bicentennial celebration until next year. The COVID-19 pandemic has made the situation too unsettled to move ahead this summer. Travel restrictions likely will continue for some time to come –  several people already have indicated that they are changing their plans to travel to Bovina in 2020. And while a celebration would be a great tonic this summer, it would be hard to carry it out while worrying about people’s health and safety. By waiting a year, we are hoping that Bovina’s big birthday party can take place in a more joyful atmosphere. We are planning on July 31/August 1, 2021 for the rescheduled celebration, using the same venue and scheduling the same or similar events, including a parade.

In the meantime, stay safe and stay tuned as we explore options for having some form of a virtual celebration during 2020.
