After much discussion and deliberation, the Chestertown Lions Club board and I have decided that we will CANCEL the Bay to Bay Bicycle Ride scheduled for Sunday, June 28, 2020, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the continued restrictions surrounding it. Though activities are starting to begin again, we cannot support a public event at this time.
Our Draw for Sight and Bay to Bay Rides are a source of much-needed income to meet the needs of our community, and we will certainly be financially impacted by this loss of fundraising opportunity. We care about every member, and the people we serve, which is why we all need to put health and safety first in this challenging time for the world.
For those cyclists who have pre-registered for this event, we have the following options:
- Accept contribution of the registration/t-shirt funds with gratitude and provide a tax statement of this as a donation. Chestertown Lions Charities, Inc. is a non-profit tax-exempt public charity as provided for in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
- Issue refund of the registration fee and t-shirt order.
Lions International has served the world for the last 100 years and Chestertown Lions since 1940. We want to continue to do that and with your support and understanding, we will!
We hope to see you next year!
Draw for Sight Poker Ride – April 25th
