Premier of Nevis Hon. Joseph Parry and his wife Mrs. Myrtle Parry, hosted a cocktail party at the Old Manor Hotel on July 17, in honour of the 2008 Culturama participants.

The cocktail featured speeches by Premier Parry, this year’s Chairman of Culturama Mr. Halstead Byron as well as representatives from the various sub committees.

Premier Parry in his presentation offered words of support to the participants but focussed heavily on the issue of deviant behaviour.  He encouraged the public to collaborate with the police and assist them in any way possible.

“Every precaution is being taken to make sure we have good shows.  Every effort is being made by the Police Force on St. Kitts and on Nevis to make sure you are protected.

“The Police is aware of what is taking place.  They have done their homework, they have organised themselves and they are ready for any eventualities,” Minister Parry said.

He appealed to parents to enroll their sons in positive activities in order to avoid them becoming delinquent.

“I am always surprised and I have been surprised for the past two years that we speak of the Juniour Calypso Show, then you see all the girls coming up and hardly any boys and it is a bad message in our community, that more and more the boys are not getting involved in anything positive and constructive.

Minister of Culture in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Hon. Hensley Daniel, appealed to the public to have a positive attitude towards the Culturama festival and its participants and to abstain criminal activity.

The Minister made the call at the official launch of the 2008 Miss Culture Queen Contestants on June 27, 2008. The event featured a motorcade of the contestants and their escorts through Charlestown and culminated at the Nevis Cultural Park on Old Hospital Road.

The four contestants for this year’s pageant are Miss Carib Brewery Tanisha Hendrickson, Miss S.L. Horsfords and Company Limited Shamilla Wilkinson, Miss Cable and Wireless Shanyra Richardson and Miss Development Bank Roslyn Berkley.

 “I want to urge all of us to please desist from discouraging people because it means that as we go forward we will always have to be stopping and starting with the festival.  I also want to say to the people in Nevis that I want to urge all of us to ensure that we have a peaceful Culturama,” he said.

Make it Great! Culturama 2K8!”

Mr. Daniel, who was a past chairman of Culturama, spoke of the NIA’s contribution to Culturama 2008.

“From our government’s position; the Cabinet and the Premier and my other Cabinet colleagues, we’re in full support of Culturama and we have given the commitment to host a show by Tempo during Culturama. We are in the process of finalising these arrangements and we expect to have one night of the festival given to Tempo again to add that international flavour to Culturama,” he said.

Chairman of the Nevis Culturama Committee Mr. Halstead Byron, assured the public that plans are well on the way towards making Culturama 2008 bigger and better.

“Certainly we are satisfied at the stage where we are at right now in terms of our preparations.  All of our sub-committees, the Culturama Secretariat and so on have been working hard and diligently to ensure that we put on a very exciting and a big Culturama festival this year,” he said.
