Due to concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the April 4th and 5th Scandinavian Festival at CLU has been cancelled. This would have been the 45th Festival with the past several being held at CLU. Approximately 6,500 attendees were expected with music, dancing, food, crafts, vendors, etc. California imposed new measures aimed at controlling the virus, telling residents to postpone or cancel gatherings of more than 250 people through the end of March. Zak Cohen-N6PK expressed his thanks to all who had volunteered to provide communications for the event.
