Just received word that Egg Day 2020 has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Here is the notice that was sent out:
It is a sad day for Winlock, our volunteers, and our participants to have to make this announcement:
After much deliberation, both the Lions Club of Winlock and the Egg Day Committee have decided to cancel our 2020 Egg Day Festival. Egg Day was postponed during World War II for a total of four years. Now our world is facing another battle with COVID-19. We hope you all stay healthy and plan on heading to Winlock the third weekend of June in 2021 for our 100th Anniversary Egg Day Celebration!
Any entry fees or sponsorship dollars that were sent by vendors, advertisers, or parade participants for 2020 will be credited to our 2021 festival. If you’d prefer to receive a refund please send your request to [email protected] and your money will be refunded as soon as possible.
Egg Day is funded solely by donations. Button and ad sales are our primary source of these donations. Although we were able to cancel most of our planned activities, we had already ordered and have received our 2020 Egg Day buttons. We will not be having our royalty contestants selling buttons this year, but the buttons will be made available for purchase as soon as we iron out the logistics. 😢
