MyVeronaNJ-snowflakeDiana Vitrano, coordinator of Fair in the Square, has sent vendors slated to participate in this year’s Fair an e-mail explaining the “difficult decision” to cancel it and offering to apply fees for this year to next year’s event. But she noted that the Fair’s policy of no refunds and no rescheduling had been communicated to vendors in its program materials.

“The cancellation of the Saturday, December 5 event was a difficult decision for Township personnel to make,” Vitrano wrote. “While the investment in planning a successful event in time and funding weighed heavily in our consideration – the forecasted weather conditions as they might impact the safety of our neighbors, participants, visitors and township personnel was at the heart of the decision.”

Vendors for 2009 will receive an application letter or e-mail in June for the 2010 Fair, which will be held Saturday, December 4, and can elect at that time to apply their 2009 payment to 2010. Vitrano’s e-mail did not indicate whether there would be a rain date for next year’s fair.
