Orange Lions Club Cancels 2020 Carnival

Orange Lions Club Carnival Rescheduled

On June 22, 2020, the Lions Club released the following statement on their Facebook Page:

The Orange Lions Club has been closely monitoring COVID-19 and assessing how it would affect our carnival for this year. Our intention has been to run the carnival if it would be safe for members, volunteers, and the public. As the carnival takes us months to plan, we must make a decision now.

In the interest of public safety and to reduce the risk of exposing all carnival-goers to the virus, we will be canceling this year’s carnival. We will continue to assess when it will be safe to schedule our next carnival.

We hope you understand how difficult this decision was, but we will always err on the side of safety when it comes to the well being of our friends and neighbors.
