KNOWLESVILLE – The Orleans County Chamber of Commerce has canceled the 2020 Home, Garden & Outdoor Show that was scheduled for April 25-26 at the 4-H Fairgrounds.

Darlene Hartway, Chamber director, said health concerns about the spreading coronavirus convinced the Chamber’s board of directors to halt the event.

The Chamber has issued refunds to the vendors and sponsors of the show. The event isn’t being rescheduled for later in the year.

“Hopefully we will be able to sponsor an event to help all our local businesses after restrictions have been lifted and the health of our community is less at risk,” Hartway said.
