For the first tmie in its 65-year history, the AACA has announced that it has had to cancel its annual Fall Meet at Hershey, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In an announcement to its membership the AACA commented:
It is with great regret that the AACA Hershey Region Executive Board informs you that the 2020 Hershey Fall Meet flea market & car corral has been canceled. This decision was not arrived at lightly. Our club prides itself on producing a world-class event that thousands of people anticipate every year, so we felt the heaviest of burdens when faced with this decision.
This is the first time in the 65 year history of the event that it has been canceled.
While making the difficult choice to cancel, the Board took many obstacles into account, including but not limited to: the health and welfare of our volunteers, vendors, partners, and visitors; the unknown restrictions and/or guidelines that may be in place at the time of our show; and the volunteer-only workforce we rely on to prepare for a show of our magnitude.
We appreciate you understanding how difficult this decision was for the Executive Board to make. We know that some people will be upset by the decision and others will applaud it. Either way, please know that the Hershey Region Executive Board has acted in what they believe are the best interests of the Club, and we ask for your continued support as we navigate these unprecedented times.
Refund information will be sent very soon in regards to all payments already received by the Hershey Region AACA.
