The Board of Directors of the Calhoun Gordon Arts Council, Inc., doing business as the Harris Arts Center, met on the evening of March 12, 2020, to consider the Center’s response to our nation’s current COVID-19 outbreak. After thorough consideration of the issue, the Board decided to suspend all events and public gatherings at the Harris Arts Center up to and including March 31, 2020. However, during that period the Center will remain open during its regular operating hours. The suspension of all activities unfortunately means that both the Calhoun Little Theater’s production of “Always….Patsy Cline” and the 14th Annual Georgia String Band Festival must be postponed and rescheduled. Further, the suspension of activities also means that no rehearsals, committee, division meetings, or other similar gathering will take place at the Center through the end of March 2020. The Board and its Chairman will continue to monitor the situation and revisit this decision as circumstances dictate.
Wash your hands, cover your coughs, and stay informed so that soon we will all see one another again at The Harris Arts Center. Thank you for your continued support for the arts.
