Bay Days needs vol­un­teers

Cape Breton Post - - NEWS | GLACE BAY/NEW WATERFORD -

Bay Days fes­ti­val or­ga­niz­ers hope to make this year’s fes­tiv­i­ties the best ever, but they need the public to hop on board.

Ce­cil Sac­cary, trea­surer, said there’s a need for vol­un­teers for the fes­ti­val which be­gins Thurs­day and con­tin­ues un­til Sun­day.

“We need peo­ple to help with some of the events go­ing on,” he said. “It also wouldn’t hurt to have vol­un­teers to help sell tick­ets for the duck race, be­cause that’s our ma­jor fundraiser.”

Sac­cary said the fundrais­ing is im­por­tant to pay for the fire­works.

“We want to make this year’s fire­works the best the public’s ever seen, but we have to reach our tar­get, make sure we can pay for it.”

Sac­cary said there are fire­works do­na­tion jars in busi­nesses in the com­mu­nity. As well peo­ple can help by sup­port­ing the fundrais­ers in­clud­ing the an­nual duck race — spon­sored by Meco Con­struc­tion — be­ing held Satur­day at 2 p.m.

Tick­ets are $5 and can be pur­chased at the Bay Days of­fice, Phar­masave, Glace Bay Shoe Store or the Chip Wagon.

There will be prizes of $1,500, $1,000 and $500.

Also Sac­cary said mon­e­tary do­na­tions are welcome. He’s con­fi­dent the com­mu­nity will not want to miss the dis­play this year.

Sac­cary also hopes res­i­dents will be part of the Bay Days pa­rade on Thurs­day at 6 p.m. Reg­is­tra­tion is at Sobeys park­ing lot at 4:30 p.m.

“It’s go­ing to be a busy, busy sched­ule ev­ery day.”

The Bay Days of­fice cel­e­brated its grand open­ing at 121 Com­mer­cial St., July 3. The of­fice is open Mon­day to Fri­day 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2-4 p.m.
