RRA Board Covid Update
Labor Day Fireworks Cancelled!
We had hoped that our cancelled Fourth of July fireworks display could take place during Labor Day weekend. Unfortunately, the situation regarding Covid has escalated during the summer. The State of Ohio Health Department mandates allow fireworks displays, but they do not allow mass gatherings of more than 10 people. Once again, the STARS Club, Association Board, the Fire Chief, the Police Chief and the Mayor all weighed in on the decision and it was the consensus that the risk is too great for our community at this time. We talked directly to the State of Ohio Coronavirus Health Experts as well as our Ashtabula County Health Department officials in hopes that we could find a way to make it work with no success. Therefore, the Labor Day 2020 fireworks are cancelled.
While it is disappointing, we hope everyone understands the safety of each and every person, living, working and playing in our community is priority one. Our past displays have drawn large crowds at both Beach One and along many of our roadways. There is no practical way we can control this type of mass gathering without putting many at risk.
Please enjoy the rest of summer. Stay safe, Stay healthy! At least we have a beautiful community to enjoy sun and nature. Thank you to all who contributed to the cost of this year’s fireworks. The money will be used towards a 2021 display! Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that our lives can soon return to some normalcy and that any pandemic issue will be only a memory. Thank you to the many residents who have found ways to share special moments on the lake this year. The July fourth private displays were awesome, and the music concerts have been much appreciated! We truly do have a wonderful community full of wonderful people!
