The Ice Cream Days festival in Le Mars is the latest event to be called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Le Mars Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Neal Adler says it was a difficult decision:
OC……right thing to do. :08
Adler says it became clear that it would be nearly impossible to enforce and maintain much separation at large group gatherings:
OC……..those numbers fall. :09
Adler says the focus right now is to assist the small businesses and the community:
OC……….assisting them. :15
The chamber, the city of Le Mars and the Ice Cream Days Committee say they look forward to June of 2021 and celebrating together again at Ice Cream Days.
