Dear Maine Marketplace Exhibitor,
We hope this message finds you well and safe during this unprecedented time.
On behalf of the University of Maine Alumni Association, I am writing to inform you of the difficult decision we’ve made to cancel the annual UMaine Alumni Association Homecoming Maine Marketplace (Craft Fair), originally scheduled for October 17 and 18, 2020.
The reason for the decision is based on the university’s pandemic-related fall health and safety protocols, which will limit to 50 the total number of vendors and patrons who can be in the Field House at any one time. We do not believe it would be financially beneficial to our vendors nor to ourselves to operate the Maine Marketplace under those circumstances.
We will be processing full refunds promptly. You should expect to receive your refund check in the mail within the next two weeks.
We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause, but we hope you understand our decision. It is with great hope that we look forward to planning a bigger and better Maine Marketplace in 2021.
Should you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you and be well,
Annie Cutler ‘11
Vice President/Chief Operations Officer
