The 2021 Manufacturer’s Milestone Banquet, which was scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 21, has been canceled.

“We will still celebrate the amazing companies in Sedalia and Pettis County who are celebrating five-year milestones this year,” read a press release from Economic Development Sedalia Pettis County (EDSPC) on Thursday.

“Many of our stakeholders have expressed concern with gathering such a large group of people together so we have made the unfortunate decision to cancel,” EDSPC explained.

The annual awards banquet is normally held at the Sedalia County Club on the third Thursday of October.

EDSPC urged anyone with questions to call their office at 827-0884, or email info@sedaliamoed.com.
