Night at the Races 2020

UPDATE:  QVSB's second annual Night at the Races is cancelled.

The local and national impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) is something we have not witnessed in recent history.

With the precautions being taken at schools, businesses, and other public places, we too will be cancelling events that may expose our families to this virus.

As mentioned in the previous email from QVRA, activities including games and practices are being cancelled until at least Monday, March 30.

With the scheduled Night at the Races taking place shortly thereafter, we think it best to cancel at this point.

Once local health and government officials give their approval and life returns back to some normalcy, we will re-evaluate the prospect of rescheduling this event.

Thank you very much for your understanding during this very unusual time.
