As you are all well aware, this has been and continues to be the most difficult year ever. For 40 years Glory Be To Kids has conquered the heat, rain, the floods and much more. This year however, has become the most difficult of all years.
After much discussion, debate, and concern for our “Glory Be family”, Glory be to Kids will be pausing all of the remaining 2020 events.
The most concerning factor in this decision is the increase in the number of positive Covid-19 cases in the U.S., and the increase of cases locally in the 20-40-year-old range. NYS has not given the green light for tournaments to be held in the parks as of yet. As you know most of the adult summer leagues have canceled the seasons, so participation is expected not only to be very low but also a great health risk to all.
Glory be to Kids is anticipating a vibrant return in 2021 with a full schedule of events. We have already started planning for 2021. Although the dates for our bowling, golf, disc golf, and chowder challenge/5K run have not been finalized. We have scheduled our 40th Gala celebration for April 17, 2021. The softball tournament has been scheduled for July 17 & 18, 2021 along with coed softball set for August 14 & 15, 2021.
Glory be to Kids wishes to extend a heartfelt, THANK YOU, to all of you. The support that you, your teams and your families have shown to us over the years is immeasurable. We wish all of you and yours a continued safe and healthy balance to 2020.
Glory Be to Kids will return, with you, stronger than ever in 2021!
Health and peace be with you until we can be together.
