Plans for the hosting of the best ever Town Week celebration in the history of Guyana gained momentum during the last week as more sponsors came on board to support the Rose Hall Town Youth and Sports Club
and its eight cricket teams. The Club would be hosting a series of activities during the period 14th – 25th of September to mark the 46th anniversary of Rose Hall Town, which attained the status of township on the 20th of September, 1970.
Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster who is spearheading the anniversary celebrations noted that the RHTYSC, MS has an unmatched record of attracting sponsorship due to its proven track record of success. Over the last week the RHTYSC, MS has attracted sponsorship from Anamayah Memorial Hospital, Harris Paint Company, HC Alphonso and Sons, the Ministry of Business and the Office of the President.
The Anamayah Memorial Hospital would be sponsoring the Inter Ward Basketball Competition between North and South Rose Hall Town, while the Harris Paint Company donated several gallons of paint towards the decorations of the township. HC Alphonso and Sons of New Amsterdam have contributed ten tons of white sand towards the Family Recreational Park, while the Office of the President contributed 100 Guyana flags towards decorating the electric poles in the township.
The Office of the Prime Minster had earlier donated a similar amount of flags while the Guyana Tourism Authority would also be handing over a quantity of flags next week. The Ministry of Business on Monday last donated $200,000 towards the hosting of the massive Career and Business Fair on the 22nd of September. The Fair would be held on the Rose Hall Town Public Road and is expected to attract at least 80 NGO’s, Government Agencies, schools and International Agencies.
Poonai’s Pharmacy would be standing the cost of lighting up the Arch Square, where most of the activities would be held. Foster expressed gratitude to the four donors and stated that the RHTYSC, MS organised, Rose Hall Town 46th Anniversary Celebration would be the best ever organised event of its nature in the history of Guyana. Noting that organising the events is very difficult, due to the fact that members of the public would not have to pay any entrance Fee, the experienced administrator stated that almost every angle has been covered. The RHTYSC, MS and its cricket teams would like to specially invite members of the public to be a part of the historic celebrations and the full calendar of activities are:
14th September – Parade and Opening Ceremony
15th September – Medical Outreach and Public Exhibition
17th September – Steel-band Concert/Dancing Competition
