Martinsville March 12, 2020 – Due to the everchanging Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, a number of public events in our region, particularly the larger gatherings, are being postponed or restructured to become virtual events . After careful consideration, the Martinsville Chamber, Martinsville Rotary Club and the City of Martinsville have made the difficult decision to postpone our 2020 State of the City Dinner which was set to take place next Tuesday, March 17th. The situation in the region is changing rapidly as evidenced by multiple announcements daily of postponed and cancelled events and we feel that it is our responsibility to err on the side of caution so that we might protect our most vulnerable citizens.

For those who have purchased tickets, we will issue refunds if necessary, but if it is possible to leave your registrations active and paid, it would be much appreciated both administratively and to facilitate a quick regrouping to stage a successful event when it is deemed safe to do so.

Please share this info with your colleagues and friends who might be affected.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this difficult and unprecedented situation. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. 765.342.8110 or
