Dear Supporters & Friends of the New Brunswick Highland Games Festival,
Thank you for being a part of another successful New Brunswick Highland Games Festival.
How do we rate the success of our festival?
- Again we had hugely successful Friends campaign, where people like you donated $15,000.00. This is outstanding community support and it is truly appreciated. These funds helped us secure great entertainment and provide you with the best highland games in Eastern Canada.
- Mother Nature co-operated and gave us another sunny weekend. We enjoyed very positive feedback from our competitors which included 13 Pipe Bands, 80+ solo pipers and drummers, 100 Highland Dancers and 35 Heavy Events athletes.
- Our entertainment, on the improved stage, drew great applause and all workshops were well attended. It was simply a wonderful celebration of Scottish culture!
We are always looking for ways to improve the event and we are open to your suggestions for an even better event in 2017. Also, we are looking for talented and dedicated individuals to step up and help out on our organizing committee for our 36th New Brunswick Highland Games Festival.
We hope as you review 2016 and consider your donations before December 31st that you think of us. By donating before December 31,2016, you will be supporting the 2017 Games and getting an additional 2016 tax receipt. If donations in December are not in your budget, then you can donate in the New Year and receive a 2017 tax receipt.
Once again, thank you so much for your support. See you again July 28th to 30th, 2017.
Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
