Upcoming Events

2020 Celebrate Children Festival - CANCELLED

As everyone is aware, the COVID-19 virus has made its way to Michigan and a state of emergency has been declared by Governor Whitmer. Having had discussions and received guidance from both the Health Department and the Monroe County ISD, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Celebrate Children event that was scheduled for Saturday, April 18th at the Mall of Monroe.

While we know the potential risk level is low for most people, we are taking the extra precautions necessary to slow the spread of the virus and not transmit it to those with weakened immune systems. Many large scale events are being cancelled and rescheduled as a protective measure and our committee has decided that this is the best practice to follow.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I will get back to you as soon as possible. All sponsors will be contacted separately to discuss the refunding of received funds.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that you will join us in 2021 for an even bigger and better CELEBRATION event!
