The COVID-19 outbreak has caused the cancellation or postponement of at least three more community events in Richmond.

Planned for May 7 at McMath Secondary, the Richmond Sports Awards will not be held this year. The awards have been held annually since 1999 to recognize outstanding individual and team achievement as well as paying tribute to those behind the scenes in the local sport community.

The Richmond VE Day, planned for the same week on May, is also on hold. Organizer Peter Mitchell said a dinner for veterans has been postponed “indefinitely.”

This May will mark the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

A celebration of the arts also won’t be held this year.

Organizers of the International Dance Day, scheduled for April 25 at Aberdeen Centre, said “following the social distance orders and direction of the federal and provincial governments, and for the well being of (all) we have made the decision to cancel International Dance Day.”
