My name is Aleasha and I wanted to know a little more about the cancelation of the flower show. I know the coronavirus is causing a lot of fear around the world, however, this event I treasure every year and I am incredibly disappointed and upset that it is closed. I have some suggestions on how people can still enjoy it since it is such an amazing event.
1.) Posting a virtual version of the flower show (or if that is too high tech, the pictures in general
2.) Not allowing the public but allowing mount Holyoke student and staff to come in (with a persons max of 50)
I hope you consider some of my thoughts with continuing the cancellation of the flower show.
