The DDA will work toward rescheduling events once it is safe, according to a press release.

"We look forward to rescheduling a number of our community events."

The DDA is working with the Michigan Farmers Market Association and the state of Michigan to seek further information on how to provide easy access to fresh food from local farmers during the affected time period.
