The Prime Minister, who has been a staunch supporter of the event since it first started in 2000, commented that she was once again “very happy and grateful to be once again able to attend this beautiful occasion in a beautiful part of St. marten. It is good to be here once again and good to be able to spend some quality and cultural time at Colombier to once again mark this very special event which is very dear to my heart.”
The Prime Minister gave a special welcome to all those who spend much of their time caring for and being excellent managers for animals, without which the competition would not be possible.
The Prime Minister did express concern at the fact that there were only about a dozen entries which is a reduction from previous years. “I am a little concerned that we are not seeing more entries into the competition and I think that it behooves the I Love My Ram Association and Governments of both sides of the island to look at ways to make sure that this show is able to continue for the enjoyment and the education of the people of St. Maarten. We should think on how we can promote the animals and the show so that we can be here every year. I encourage all the goat keepers to continue doing their excellent jobs”, continued the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister concluded by stating that she had received a commitment of assistance that would perhaps allow her to participate in next year’s competition.
