Grenlec Partners with Petite Martinique Whitsuntide Regatta Committee
The Whitsuntide weekend, June 2 – 5th, saw an influx of visitors to sister isle Petite Martinique for the annual Whitsuntide Regatta Festival.
Celebrating the thirtieth year of hosting the Regatta, the festival committee was pleased to once again have the support of Grenlec – under its Community Partnership Initiative- and other corporate sponsors that have kept this traditional festival thriving for many years.
Presenting the Regatta Committee with a symbolic Flambeau at the opening ceremony, Wallace Collins, Manager of Grenlec’s Carriacou Operations said, “As a corporate citizen, we remain cognisant of the need to support events of this nature that impact our nations’ culture and traditions. We are particularly honoured to be a part of this longstanding Festival and congratulate the Committee on the enhancement and growth of the event over the years”.
A contribution of six thousand dollars was made towards the 2017 event. Grenlec has been a contributor to the Festival for many years and looks forward to continuing its partnerships that promote growth and development in our communities.
