This includes cancellation of Apple Pie Day on Wednesday, March 18th, Choral Group Practices, and Men's Breakfast. The board will re-evaluate in two weeks time and an update will be given.

MARCH 16th 2020

"At First Cornwallis Baptist Youth, the health and safety of our youth are our first priority. As such, in light of the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Nova Scotia and after careful consideration of all factors, we have decided to postpone our annual Apple Pie Day fundraiser scheduled for Wednesday, March 18. We want to thank all who were planning on coming to assist for your support. We are hoping to re-schedule this fundraiser for a later date in April; providing this virus has passed. For anyone who purchased pies, should you wish to cancel your order, please contact us directly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding."
