An event held annually in Mount Pleasant has been canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The board members of Midwest Old Threshers Reunion announced Wednesday afternoon that they have been working tirelessly to address social distancing, sanitation, the increased financial implications, and the key loss of some volunteers, coordinators, and civic groups.
Given the far-reaching impact the health ramifications could have not only in Henry County but much all surrounding counties, the board made the decision to cancel The Reunion for this year.
Midwest Old Threshers Reunion has been held every year in Mount Pleasant since 1950. This is the first year the event has been canceled.
In a statement, the board says their focus has now shifted to the 2021 Midwest Old Threshers Reunion scheduled for September 2-6.
