EXPO is Postponed

The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center board of directors has announced that their EXPO 2020 event slated for Saturday, March 14, is being postponed, citing community health concerns.

“Due to the recommendations of the CDC and the health and safety of our community, we will be postponing our Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Center’s EXPO 2020 that was originally planned for this Saturday,” said Chamber board president Gary Parrett.

“We are trying to be proactive in limiting opportunities for transmission of this virus,” Parrett said. “We ask the community’s support and understanding as we make this difficult decision. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

The annual event showcasing local businesses and organizations draws a crowd of more than 2000 people. Plans are now underway for the event to be held later in the year.

Announcements will be forthcoming once a new date is set.
