Kent Is­land Day can­celed

Record Observer - - News -

STEVENSVILLE — A fore­cast of rainy weather for Satur­day, May 21, has led to the can­cel­la­tion of the 2016 edi­tion of Kent Is­land Day, ac­cord­ing to the Kent Is­land Her­itage So­ci­ety.

There is no rain date, so­ci­ety Pres­i­dent Jack Brod­er­ick said Wed­nes­day, shortly af­ter the de­ci­sion was made.

“We’re look­ing for­ward to a big­ger and bet­ter event next year,” he said, adding that the so­ci­ety de­cided to act pre­emp­tively, based on sev­eral fore­casts, which are call­ing for rain chances of between 80 to 100 per­cent on Kent Is­land Satur­day.

Kent Is­land Day had been sched­uled to run in His­toric Stevensville from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Satur­day, but Brod­er­ick said the so­ci­ety felt it was bet­ter to make a can­cel­la­tion call early so that the var­i­ous par­tic­i­pants could be no­ti­fied.
