I am not aware that there has been any official letter from Church headquarters on the subject. Perhaps your stake president received some guidance from his area authority.
In any event, although they are not called by that name, they are alive and well in some areas of the Church, and they do not exist in others. I believe the holding of these activities would be at the discretion of the bishop under the direction of his stake president.
