After thoughtful consideration, the Mentone Area Preservation Association (MAPA) board of directors has decided to cancel this year's RHODODENDRON FESTIVAL, scheduled on May 16 & 17, for the health and wellness of all.
The MISS RHODODENDRON PAGEANT, scheduled for May 8, has also been cancelled for all contestant categories except the Miss Rhododendron category (High School Senior Division). These contestants will still be able to compete for the Miss Rhododendron title and the NACC scholarship will be awarded. Look for details about the Senior Division portion of the Miss Rhododendron Pageant next week at mapamentone.com/2020-miss-rhododendron.
We hope to see you at COLORFEST on the 3rd weekend in October, the 17th and 18th. Mark your calendars!
