After last year's Festival cancellation, we looked forward to bringing back your favorite event on October 24, 2021. We have started our planning effort and preparations in June and we were hopeful that we can safely hold the Festival. After reviewing current COVID-19 infection rates and community transmission in our area, we realized that having a safe large indoor event in October was not possible. We have also considered official CDC guidelines for large events and potential health impact on festival attendees and volunteers. After a thorough discussion, the CSHA Board of Directors decided to cancel this year's Festival. It was a difficult decision, but we must put the health of our members and all festival visitors first. We thank you for your understanding and your continued support.

It is with great sadness that we announce passing of our dear friend, long-term board member, and former CSHA Vice President, Stephen Sabol Jr. Many of you remember Stephen tending bar at our Annual Festival year after year, often wearing a big hat and a smile on his face. And this is how we will always remember him: joyous, friendly, and dedicated to his community. Deepest condolences to his wife Viera and the whole family.
