This afternoon the Executive Committee of the Victoria Sketch Club met and decided based on the current information available necessary to cancel its 111th Annual Art Show scheduled for next week at the Glenlyon Norfolk Junior School Campus.
Our decision was based on a potential case of the Coronavirus [ COVID 19] at the Glenlyon Norfolk School. While we do not know the test results the reality is that prudence must take precedence over planned public events such as our art show which The Honourable Janet Austin Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia was slated to open on the evening of 17 March.
Additionally, we did not wish to interfere with the School’s planned programme to cleanse the campus. We regret having to make this decision but it was necessary. If the public health situation clarifies with the coming of spring we may reschedule our show sometime later in 2020.
