The Medford-Vincentown Rotary Club (MVRC) announces that the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the cancellation of the annual Halloween Parade that the organization had hoped to stage on Oct. 24. The ongoing public health crisis — most importantly ensuring the health and safety of the community–prevents the event from taking place.

The members of the Club are disappointed, but look forward with the hope that they will be able to stage the parade again on Oct. 23, 2021. In the meantime, we are constantly thinking of our community and are finding ways to make it a better place.
