Housing Snohomish County Project

The March 5 Affordable Housing Breakfast has been cancelled

 

Dear Friend,


Today, March 4, both Snohomish County and the City of Everett declared a State of Emergency with regard to the Corona Virus. This has caused us to cancel the breakfast. 


We strive to be a responsible and caring member of our greater community. Knowing that many of the 80 plus people registered for the event work with vulnerable populations and not wanting to risk providing a new vector for the virus, we feel it is prudent to take this action.
 
We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your understanding and patience as we figure out our next steps regarding the possibility of rescheduling the event to a future date, offering refunds or advance payments for a future event, etc.

 

Best regards,

 

Mark Smith
Executive Director
