Find ways of working together and you will see that your town and your residents will benefit. Involve the wide cross section of the community in your endeavours because no sector, no individual, no political party or institution has all the answers to the myriad challenges confronting New Amsterdam. It will be by combining your collective experiences, energy, talent and creativity that you will find the solutions to better the lives of all the residents of your town,” Harmon said.The celebration of Town Week, the Minister said, is an opportunity to celebrate the Town’s heritage and history at the community level as well as to reminisce on those good things, which have taken place in the town.
