LIGONIER — More events are canceled and buildings shut in an effort to control the number of COVID-19 cases.
The following is a list compiled of updated closure info:
Easter Egg Hunt — canceled
The Ligonier Parks Department announced Tuesday that the Easter Egg Hunt, originally scheduled for April 4, is now canceled.
Instead of spending that afternoon hunting for easter eggs, they will be handed out to West Noble students and families at the April 8 school lunch meal pick-up while supplies last.
Ligonier youth soccer program — canceled
The Ligonier Parks Department also notified its families that the annual soccer league is canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Those who have already registered their child for the soccer program can choose to either receive a refund or put the payment towards a different youth program.
“We are sincerely disappointed to have to cancel these events and apologize for the inconvenience,” the Parks Department wrote.
Those in need of help with registrations can call the Recreation Center at 894-7344 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ligonier Sports and Recreation Center — closure extended
Following Gov. Holcomb’s stay at home order Monday, the Ligonier Sports and Recreation Center announced its closure would continue.
Originally, the Recreation Center was to reopen after March 28.
An executive order from Ligonier Mayor Patty Fisel’s office makes the Recreation Center close until Indiana is no longer under a public health emergency.
“Also, during the time of the public health emergency in the State of Indiana, all programs associated with the Ligonier Sports & Rec Center will be suspended,” the order read.

Following Gov. Holcomb’s executive order 20-08,, Ligonier City Hall and the utilities lobby is temporarily closed to the general public until April 7.
