Greetings Friends, Family & the greater Harleysville Community,
It has been over a year since we’ve entered into this pandemic, and our lives have been altered in a way that few of us would have thought possible at that time. As members of the Harleysville Jaycees, we are all dedicated to continuing our support for the local community and to helping us all return to a sense of ‘normalcy’ as soon as we are able.
However, it has been our decision to cancel the 2021 Harleysville Country Fair Days out of an abundance of caution, and concern for the strain that it puts on local organizations and volunteer groups as we emerge from this pandemic.
We are currently in the process of planning a modified series of community-oriented events on Saturday, May 29. This will look much different than the fair of years’ past. Our goal is to continue to bring the community together and encourage us all to enjoy the first taste of Summer in a safe and fun way that all can enjoy.
We thank you all for your continued support and inquiries related to the fair. We do plan to bring it back as soon as we’re able. With restrictions on gatherings that will hopefully continue to ease, we will be exploring options related to a larger fair-style event which may be held as soon as the end of Summer.
We would like to specifically thank our sponsors, whose financial contributions have helped to contribute to our success. We know that times have been challenging for us all, and we appreciate any and all support that you’re able to provide to our organization at this time, which will help provide the seed funding for future events.
We also want to recognize our volunteers, supporters in local public service, and the community as a whole – without your support of our organization and events, none of this would be possible.
Our thoughts also go out to all those that have been impacted by COVID-19. May we emerge from this stronger and with a renewed community spirit. In the meantime, we hope you will join us as we plan various community support and fundraising events over the next year. We hope to see you all soon.
President, Harleysville Jaycees
If you are able, please also consider making a donation to help give back to those who need it most within our community. Any amount that you give will help us provide assistance to the community in place of the funds that are typically raised by the Fair.
