the Higley Association 2020 Newsletter: In conversation with
local elected officials and in conjunction with decisions and
recommendations made by State, County and neighboring towns relative to
activities and summer events, it has been with much thought and concern
that the board members of the Higley Association are announcing the 2020 tentative calendar of events is hereby cancelled.
Without a doubt, it’s a huge inconvenience and we will miss the fun and
excitement of getting together at our events but we like to think of it
as a “bump in the road” just for this summer!|
