- For Immediate Release –

CIVIC SOUNDS CANCELLED THIS EVENING

For the first time in many years, and with sincere disappointment, the Downtown Vernon Association (DVA) is cancelling Civic Sounds this evening (Thursday, August 9, 2018) due to the extreme heat and poor air quality advisories in place late this afternoon.

“This is a very difficult decision to make, but the DVA believes that given today’s special weather and environment advisories, we must lean in the direction of preserving the health and safety of the attendees, staff, and the performers,” says Susan Lehman, Executive Director of the DVA.

“We hope to have tonight’s headliners, The Keys, perform again very soon, and details will be released once finalized”.

The DVA Board is proud of the determined growth, innovative spirit, civic pride and diversity that Vernon’s downtown offers, and the Board and staff remain committed to working diligently with empathy and understanding for all to improve the conditions for doing business and living in our beautiful City Centre. The DVA has been a committed advocate for downtown businesses in Vernon since 1967. https://downtownvernon.com/about
