Father's Day Paper Airplane Party is Cancelled

I'm very sorry to say that I am cancelling the Father's Day Paper Airplane Party on Saturday.  My grandfather died and I will be away at his funeral.  Due to the very late notice, if you see anyone you know was planning to attend, I would appreciate it if you would let them know it's been cancelled.  Thank you.
