Councillors Trying to Save Natal Day Breakfast Tradition
(Tuesday, July 9/2002)-- There'll be no annual Natal Day Breakfast in Halifax this year unless two regional Councillors can convince someone to sponsor the event.
Councillors Sue Uteck and Sheila Fougere have issued a public appeal in hopes of enticing an individual, a group or a business to sponsor the popular $4,000 event. They are also hoping volunteers will step forward to help prepare and serve the food.
The Councillors say the Natal Day Committee decided to cancel this year's Halifax Breakfast, due to Budgetary constraints. Based on attendance numbers, the Committee decided to fund the Dartmouth Breakfast only.
Councillor Uteck said "We understand the Committee's funding difficulties, but the Halifax Breakfast is a tradition that should be continued. Many citizens and families look forward to attending the breakfast each year, and now they are going to be very disappointed. Councillor Fougere and I are going to see if we can save it."
Both Councillor Uteck and Fougere are hopeful a potential sponsor or sponsors will emerge in time to plan for the Halifax Breakfast this Natal Day-August 5th.
