In the past our thoughts during this time of year were filled with the anticipation of being outside and spending time with friends and neighbors. We have looked forward to the neighborhood activities that Enderis Park Neighborhood residents and guests have typically enjoyed.
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic and with very heavy hearts, the Enderis Park Neighborhood Association Board is announcing the cancellation of the following EPNA 2020 activities:
· Bloom and Groom plant sale
· EPNA Rummage Sale
· Fourth of July Parade and Celebration
· Farmers Market 2020 season
· Concerts on the Green 2020 season
The Covid-19 pandemic has provided many challenges to all of us. We have all been working to follow the Safer at Home order which required that we all stay at home and avoid non-essential activities, as well as The Badger Bounce Back Guidelines, which provides guidance to gradually reopen Wisconsin businesses and activities. By following social distancing modifications and group size guidelines we have been able to do much, and continue to do much, to stay healthy and protect ourselves, our loved ones and our neighbors. In so many ways, we are all “essential neighbors” to each other.
In making the decision to cancel these events, the EPNA Board and event committees have carefully considered all available information. Out of an abundance of caution, decisions were made based on the ability to hold or modify each event to insure the safe and healthy social distancing for all guests, participants and volunteers. The decisions were made considering Federal, State, City and Milwaukee Recreation Department guidelines and directives, and of course common sense.
We are so very grateful, as always, to our wonderful sponsors, volunteers, EPNA members and neighbors.
As we move closer to Fall of 2020 we will continue to monitor our ability to hold our popular Harvest Fest Celebration (October), provide guidance regarding our nighttime Trick-or-Treat event and any other events.
In the meantime we will all be working hard throughout the coming year to reinvent our favorite EPNA activities in 2021. We look forward to being together again...STRONGER THAN EVER!
