Immaculate Heart of Mary School is announcing that the Annual Fund Raising Dinner scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020 will be postponed, due to the evolving global situation regarding COVID-19.
This decision has been made in the best interest of the patrons attending the Dinner, the volunteers assisting at the Dinner, and individuals working at the event.
A pandemic has now been declared by the World Health Organization, and social distancing strategies are now being recommended to all Manitobans to limit the spread of COVID-19. The recommendation is to minimize prolonged, large group, crowded activities. Immaculate Heart of Mary School, and the Manitoba Catholic Schools, are in regular contact with public health officials who continue to monitor the situation as the health and safety of people is a paramount concern. Immaculate Heart of Mary School is committed to mitigating the risk to individuals, and to be a part of the solution to stop the spread of COVID-19.
The plan is that the IHMS Fund Raising Dinner will be postponed to a later date in the spring. In the event the Dinner is cancelled, for patrons who have purchased tickets, a full refund will be issued. This is a very extenuating circumstance. We thank you or your understanding. Hang onto your ticket!
Prayers for your good health.
