The Italian Club of Benld announced on Saturday, April 4 that this year’s Benld Italian American Days celebration is canceled.
The announcement follows Governor Pritzker’s announcement on March 30 that extended the “stay at home” order to April 30, an extension from the original order that ended April 7.
“With the uncertainty of the economy and the possibilities that the restrictions will go into May, we decided that was the best decision for our organization,” Jerry Saracco said. “We also hope that everyone will keep us in mind for 2021.”
The club concluded by hoping we all can overcome this virus and the issues attached to the current pandemic.
