Mr. Speaker, since taking office and appointing a Festival and Fairs Committee to plan this year’s activities, I have been sounding the same refrain that we must celebrate our heritage and culture, give opportunities to our local cultural artisans, and to be fiscally responsible. Based on those criteria, we have had successes and opportunities for improvement.
In anticipation of the 65th Annual Emancipation Celebrations, the Virgin Islands Festival and Fairs Parade (VIFF) Sub-committee in conjunction with the Virgin Islands Festival and Fairs Committee will be hosting a Celebratory Dinner under the theme: -“Honouring all generations: Let’s commemorate the 65th Emancipation Celebration.”
