Cruise-In and Party in the Park to Return in 2021

August 7, 2020

Unfortunately, we had to make the difficult decisions to cancel the Cruise-In to Butler Township on August 8th and the Party in the Park on October 10th, as a result of the mandates and restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. The health, safety and welfare of our community was of top priority when making these difficult decisions. We will look forward to these events returning in 2021.
