Invitation to Media

The "Velvet Touch Award"

(Thursday, May 15/08) – The "Velvet Touch Award" will highlight activities this year for Halifax Regional Municipality's celebration of National Public Works Week.

National Public Works Week organizers are looking for media personalities with a gentle touch. All that your media outlet representative has to do is lift a bucket of water from one 45-gallon drum to another using a backhoe.

HRM's organizing committee invites you to send along the name of your media personality to represent your organization in the competition on Thursday, May 22nd (time TBD but around noon) in Grand Parade, City Hall.

If your news outlet is interested in participating in this year's event, please contact Darren Young, HRM Transportation and Public Works, 490-4862.

Thank you.
