Due to the serious and rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, WPBS has postponed a number of events including the Annual All Star Auction (originally scheduled for April 18th – 26th ) and Ready Set Fun! (originally scheduled for May 9th).
As these events involve the gathering of large groups of people, we will of course follow the instructions and guidance from public health and government authorities as to when they might be safely rescheduled.
We want to thank the many businesses and individuals across the North Country and Eastern Ontario who support these events, which provide important opportunities to engage and raise funds for WPBS activities and programming.
Our hearts and thoughts go out to the people and families across our region, and around the world, whose lives have been greatly impacted by this virus, and we deeply appreciate the efforts of healthcare workers and emergency responders in our communities.
