Cancellation of 2020 WHHS Heritage Banquet
Dear Members and Patrons,
The West Hants Historical Society has made the difficult decision to cancel our annual heritage banquet which, due to COVID, was postponed until September 26th. When I say, difficult, I’m speaking in terms of it being our main annual fundraiser, not in terms of public safety. From the perspective of public safety, we don’t feel it would be prudent to attempt to proceed with any type of gathering, even within the provincial guidelines.
I know that everyone was looking forward to Richard Smith’s well-researched presentation on the Payzant family, but we hope that we may be able to offer this talk at a later date and in safer conditions.
So, next comes the part where we get everybody their money back and please bear with us while we do.
You can get a full refund by visiting the WHHS Museum at 281 King St., Windsor, between the hours of 10am-4pm on any Wednesday. If you are unable to come to the museum please contact us and we’ll make alternate arrangements with you.
If you choose not to get a refund, but instead would like to donate the cost of the tickets to our fundraising, efforts please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 902 798 4706 and we will provide you with a tax receipt.
We’re very sorry we are unable to offer you the fellowship and festivity that usually transpires at our annual banquet, but we truly hope to see you all soon and in better times.
Thank you for your continued support.
