The Mountain Maryland PACE committee has announced the cancellation of the annual event in Annapolis, previously scheduled for January of next year. Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19, including the ever-changing gathering size restrictions and travel concerns, the decision was made to err on the side of caution. The committee has proceeded with an early cancellation, in order to devote more time to developing an alternate plan. The Maryland General Assembly will a still convene in January. Plans for the return of an in-person event in 2022 are already underway.
