July, 2020

The executive board of Livonia Town Hall has made the difficult decision to suspend our currently scheduled programs for one year. This includes the cancellation of September 16, 2020 speaker, Gioia Diliberto, as well as the entire 2020-2021 season. Due to the current health crisis of Covid-19, and the size of our audience of over 300 people, we felt that safely meeting indoors was not attainable and not in anyone’s best interest.

All 2020-2021 “group contacts” will be receiving their original registration material back in the mail using their self addressed, stamped envelopes. We ask that the “group contact” communicate the decision to suspend programs and return the uncashed checks to the individual subscribers. As is our policy, there is no refund for the cancelled speaker originally scheduled for March 2020.

The board will continue to meet throughout the year. It is our intent to rebook the same speakers we were planning to enjoy, for the 2021-2022 season. We will keep you updated on our website livoniatownhall.org, Facebook, Twitter, the Livonia Observer, and through email.

Livonia Town Hall intends to continue as the altruistic, educational and entertaining organization for which we are known. We hope you will return in the fall of 2021 for our 57th season!

Thank you for your understanding and assistance, please stay safe.
