Covid-19 Changes:

1: Our April issue of the Bluegrass Canada magazine will be delayed. Current plans are to have it delivered by mid-April.

2: The online magazine will be available as soon as the proofing process has been completed (we are optomistically forecasting April 1.)

3: The online magazine will be available to all all, regardless of membership status, for the foreseeable future.

4: We have not altered the advertisements placed into the magazine. Please be advised that festivals may or may not be presented this year, at their advertised location and times. If you are planning to attend one of these events, please check with the organizers prior to going. If you have purchased advance tickets, check with the organizers, for their policy regarding these ticket purchases.

Changes to Online Membership:

The membership database is in a state of re-design, due to technological advances in the underlying software..

These changes have required us to eliminate the online membership portal which many of you have used in the past, to join or renew, make changes, make renewal payments and so on.

Our re-design will take some time. In the meantime, we will have to resort to primitive methodology, such as email, snail mail and telephone, to accomplish our purpose.

The Membership Director can be reached at 519-271-2350 (Gord DeVries) or at He will be happy to help with any function or problem you're having.
