Summer is upon us, and as many of you know, the planning for the 68th Berwick Gala Days is underway. The committee is currently putting together this year’s program, looking for volunteers and approaching sponsors. At times like these, it feels as if we, along with other organizations, are constantly asking for something. For this reason, we feel it is important to remind everyone what events, such as Berwick Gala Days, mean to our communities.
To our sponsors, Berwick Gala Days offers exposure through advertising. We have radio and newspaper ads, banners, and more importantly, our program, which is sent out to approximately 16,000 homes, from Greenwood to Kentville. To the businesses of Berwick, Gala Days increases the number of customers within the Berwick area, potentially increasing sales. To the youth organizations, Berwick Gala Days offers funds to support their programs, while teaching them the values of working together to raise money for their groups. In saying this, it is easy to get caught up in the financial aspect of Gala Days, when it should be seen as something beyond monetary gain. We must remember that Gala Days is a community event, where everyone works together, to create a weekend full of activities for the whole family. For the past sixty seven years, Gala Days has offered a range of events for all ages. Many of you have childhood memories of the annual fair, and therefore look forward to taking your own child every summer. To those of you who are new in town, Gala Days is an excellent opportunity to meet new people, and learn what Berwick is really about.
We would like to encourage everyone to come out to the 68th Berwick Gala Days and carry on the traditions, and the community support, that makes our town so great. surrounding areas.
