2021 Annual Meeting Cancellation

Dec 17, 2021

Dear UFC Patrons, 

Whether nationally or locally, businesses have a long history of stepping up to lead in moments when our communities need it most. As I write to you, we continue to face one of these defining moments, impacting each one of us in both our place of business as well as at home. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate our patrons' and employees' constant dedication to safety and the collective recognition that now more than ever, safety cannot stop.

UFC recognizes the importance of safety, and is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for our employees, patrons and the communities we serve. Safety is a core value of our business. Not only does it prevent injury to those we care about most, it also contributes to the overall productivity and success of our business.

Throughout the last month, the board of directors and I have had many conversations regarding the 2021 annual meeting and whether or not to proceed. Ultimately, we’ve made the difficult decision to forgo the event. It is simply too risky to bring our staff and community members together given the ongoing challenges we face with COVID-19 and cold and flu season. While this decision is very difficult to communicate, it was made with your best interest in mind. We are committed to providing our patrons adequate information on fiscal 2021 results and will be doing so in the coming weeks. Thanks to you, UFC had a great year and we need to celebrate this success. 

Thank you for your understanding. 

Mitch Altermatt, CEO and General Manager
