Cedar Hill’s Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cancel programming through October 31.

After reviewing State regulations for outdoor activities, it was determined that it was best not to offer guided walks or public events such as our concert or movie night.

Social distancing requirements regarding masks, spacing, and group size would limit our ability to provide a comfortable program experience. Although disheartening to cancel activities, the Board feels it is best to do so.

Look below for videos and webpage links that share highlights from these canceled programs. New content will continue to be added, so check back often or sign up for our eNewsletter to receive updates.
