BREAKING: Mountain Maryland PACE Reception Canceled

September 22nd, 2020 by WCBC Radio

The Mountain Maryland PACE committee this morning announced the cancelation of their annual event in Annapolis, previously scheduled for January of 2021. Due to concerns surrounding COVID, including ever-changing gathering size restrictions and travel concerns, the decision was made to err of the side of caution.

“The PACE committee has been committed to the promotion of Allegany and Garrett Counties in Annapolis for 45 years. After weighing the benefits, risks, and costs surrounding our annual event, we decided to proceed with an early cancellation in order to devote more time into developing an alternate plan,” says PACE Co-Chair, Jeremy Irons. “Though our in-person event is canceled, the work of the PACE committee will continue on. The Maryland General Assembly will still go in to session and we are committed to finding innovative ways to promote our region and shine a spotlight on the unique assets and challenges of Mountain Maryland.”

Plans for the return of an in-person event in 2022 are already underway. To keep informed of PACE happenings, visit us online at or find us on Facebook.
