Due to circumstances beyond our control, and in order to conform with State & Federal health guidelines concerning the Wu Han Virus regarding the canceling/postponing of events, as well as reducing our social interactions of groups larger than 10 people, we make the following announcements.

Although we must abide by these guidelines, being a non-profit, we are reliant on our events to raise the funding needed to operate, but first and foremost we have a responsibility to also help ensure the safety of our patrons. We are therefore postponing our Appomattox Oyster & Seafood Festival, originally set for Saturday, April 18, 2020, until it is again safe to reschedule the event.

Any sponsors or vendors already committed to the event will be given the opportunity to have their money refunded or held until the event reschedules. We will also cancel our monthly membership meetings, getting information to members through email instead. We must also postpone the opening of our Old Jail Museum in Courthouse Square and our Clover Hill Village Living History Center on River Ridge Rd, both originally set for the first weekend in April, until it is safe to allow the public to gather without restrictions.

We will update the public through our Facebook pages and our website, We deeply apologize for any inconvenience these postponements/cancellations may cause.

Keep healthy!
