The Celebrate America organizing team from South Whidbey Assembly of God had hoped that by the end of March there would be clarity about what July 2021 and COVID-19 restrictions might look like.
According to organizers of the event, the state has provided no guidelines, or even a hint of what July might look like.
The organizing team set March 31 as the day to decide “go” or “no.”
Because the event takes months to plan, assemble details, recruit and align participants and raise the needed funds, the organizers said this week the uncertainty leaves the team too short of time to pull off the event.
“Looking forward to Celebrate America 2022,” said Matt Chambers, senior pastor at South Whidbey Assembly.
