Event Details – March 21, 2020

P - Regional - Regional Communications - CANCELLED

Start Date: March 21, 2020 9:00 AM End Date: March 21, 2020 4:00 PM
Location: Grande Prairie  

Program Description:


After careful consideration and review, a decision has been made that all 4-H sanctioned activities and events in Alberta scheduled to take place between Friday, March 13, 2020 and Tuesday, April 14, 2020 inclusive are to be suspended effective immediately. This includes club, district, region and provincial levels.

We recognize and appreciate all the time dedicated to planning and preparing for various 4-H programming by our members, volunteers, and supporters across the province, however, we feel this is the best decision to keep the 4-H program a vibrant, safe and inclusive environment for youth. While the risk of contracting COVID-19 in Alberta remains low according to Alberta Health, the safety of our members, parents, guardians, volunteers and families is always first priority and we believe strongly that early action is the best way for 4-H in Alberta to help stop the transmission of the virus.
