An old time brass band, a majorette group and non-stop public participation contributed to a "memorable" carnival 2013 experience for St. Maarten’s premier telecommunication provider, TelEm Group.

The company’s team of volunteers were out in force during the Carnival Grand Parade Tuesday whipping up the carnival crowds with dance routines and a loud brass ensemble.

"We wanted to bring some of the "Old School" feel back to carnival. Judging by the response from the crowds, we were very well received," said TelEm Group Marketing Officer, Marelva Felix-Jones.

She says TelEm Group customers have come to expect something different from their favour telecommunication provider on big occasions such as these and all efforts were made not to disappoint.

"Our customers and friends can expect us to continue to be different and put new twists on other events for the rest of the year," continued the Marketing Officer.

She said the company’s involvement in this year’s carnival began weeks before the opening of carnival on April 18, with some pre-carnival roadshow parties.

It continued with sponsorship of several carnival events including the opening night of Carnival, two hugely successful beauty pageants and a Youth Extravaganza concert.

"We could not have done any of it without the help and participation of the public, especially TelEm Group customers and friends who have been with us from the start of our campaign right to the final parade," continued Marelva.

She thanked the group’s costume designers, sponsors, helpers, band participants, the majorettes, coordinators and especially TelEm Group personnel who worked tirelessly to make the event a fun one for everyone concerned.

On behalf of the team, Marelva has also thanked TelEm Group management for supporting the company’s Carnival Core Team Carnival program 2013.
