It is with deep regret that your board is forced to announce the cancellation of the Kids’ Fest planned for 7 October 2018. This decision was the result of discussions with our insurer regarding potential liability issues. We were informed that the individual board members would be financially and legally liable for any claims of injury by attendees at the event whether the claim arose from our activities or even a dog bite. It is a sad statement that our society has become so prone to legal action. We deeply regret any disappointment this may cause for our members and their children.
We also want to thank those few individuals who stepped forward and volunteered to help supervise the planned activities. Your willingness to help was deeply appreciated.
