On behalf of the Alive After Five Committee and its presenting partners; the City of Clinton, County of Sampson and the Sampson Arts Council, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the Alive After Five Concert Series.

As you are aware, the COVID-19 Pandemic continues to have tremendous impact on our Nation, State and County. We are in uncharted waters, but we will get through this with the help of family, friends and neighbors.

Over the past several months, the AA5 Committee has continued to meet and has had multiple conversations regarding the 2020 Season. The committee has remained hopeful that we would be able to present concerts this season, even if we had to scale back the number of concerts presented.

However, with the safety of our sponsors, attendees, and band members being at the forefront of each conversation, and with the uncertainty of when communities will be allowed to hold outdoor gatherings, events or festivals with large numbers of attendees, the committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s season.

Please know that the AA5 Committee is dedicated to serving our community and continuing to provide concerts and entertainment opportunities for the residents of Sampson County; as well as those that visit our community.

Again, on behalf of the entire committee, please accept our most sincere appreciation for your support. We hope that you and your family stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely, Alive After Five Committee
