As readers of this newsletter know, the 2021 Putt and Pub Crawl, which raises over $10,000 for community organizations, was canceled when Town Manager Roger Hernstadt denied the Woman’s Club a permit for the event. It was our original understanding the event was canceled due to the town’s 2019 COVID-19 Emergency Declaration.
However, here’s what Hernstadt told the weekly newspaper. “The Woman’s Club put in an application for a large-gathering, special permit which didn’t address how the event would meet CDC guidelines for social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic and so it was rejected.”
That statement was a complete surprise to many people, including the Woman’s Club, which provided a copy of page 11 of their 28-page application (see below). So at this point it’s unclear exactly why the event, originally scheduled for tomorrow, was canceled.
