EMANCIPATION CELEBRATION AT LANSPEARY POSTPONED UNTIL 2017
July 1, 2016
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the Emancipation Celebration at Lanspeary Park, previously scheduled for August 6 & 7, 2016.
Though the past two years proved to be successful in attracting Windsorites and special guests to the event, it is a costly endeavour. For these years, the majority of the funding has come directly from committee members and local business supporters. This year, there is simply not enough funding.
After recent restructuring, we have committed ourselves to working with other community groups and government agencies to ensure that the Emancipation Celebrations at Lanspeary Park continue in the coming year.
We are extremely grateful to the thousands who did participate in the previous two celebrations and commit to you, that the Emancipation Celebrations at Lanspeary Park will continue in 2017.
