Chemung County Department of Aging & Long Term Care regrets to announce the postponement of the BOCCE event originally scheduled for tomorrow, June 7th. This decision has been made considering the impact of large wildfires in Quebec-Ontario, which are producing copious amounts of smoke, and have significantly impacted the air quality across the state, including Chemung County. The health and safety of our community members are our top priorities, and it is essential that we take necessary precautions to ensure their well-being.
The deteriorating air quality caused by these fires poses potential health risks, particularly for seniors and individuals with respiratory conditions. After careful consideration and consultation with local Emergency Management, it has been determined that postponing the BOCCE event is the responsible course of action to safeguard the athlete’s health and welfare.
Chemung County Dept. of Aging & Long Term Care is actively working to secure a new date and time for the BOCCE event. We understand the excitement and anticipation surrounding this event, and we are committed to providing the community with an update as soon as possible. Participants and spectators can expect further communication in the coming days regarding the rescheduling of the event.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this postponement. While we understand the disappointment this may bring, it is our duty to prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved. We encourage all community members to stay informed about the air quality conditions and take necessary precautions during this time.
Chemung County Department of Aging & Long Term Care extends its heartfelt gratitude to all the participants, volunteers, and sponsors who have supported this event. We remain dedicated to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for our community members. Updates regarding the new date and time for the BOCCE event will be shared through our official website, social media channels, and local media outlets.
