Event Cancelled – 2020 Penn Township Community Picnic and Health and Wellness Fair
At their virtual public meeting on June 3, 2020, the Penn Township Supervisors made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Penn Township Community Picnic and Health and Wellness Fair sponsored by Jennersville Hospital/Tower Health. The decision came after weeks of discussion but in the end, the Supervisors, who are charged with protecting the health, safety and welfare of the Penn Township community, decided to cancel due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the limitations on crowd size.
“In the end, we decided to only hold events during which we could adhere to the Governor’s guidelines,” stated Board Chair Curtis Mason. “While it breaks my heart to cancel this picnic which is so loved and anticipated by our community, I think we are doing the right thing for our community.”
The Supervisors pledged to make the 2021 Penn Township Community Picnic and Health and Wellness Fair bigger and better than ever.
For the remainder of 2020, the township will be holding smaller events compliant with current guidelines. There are some exciting things planned, and those will be announced in the coming weeks.
For the past sixteen years, Penn Township and Jennersville Hospital/Tower Health have hosted the Annual Health & Wellness Community Picnic. This picnic is funded entirely by generous donations from sponsors; no taxpayer funds are used and nothing is sold during the event. From humble beginnings of only a few hundred people and barbeque, this picnic has grown into the premier event in southern Chester County with over 4,000 people in attendance last year. It is a free day full of fun, health information, wellness screenings, local businesses, non-profits, public safety organizations, food, music, and activities for all ages.
Unfortunately, the 2020 picnic has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, planning for 2021 is already underway! If you would like more information regarding our picnic, would like to attend or you are an entertainer who would like to offer your services, feel free to reach out to the event coordinator, Caitlin Ianni.
In January 2021 we will begin sending out sponsorship requests, reservations for event vendors and also volunteer sign ups.
