VALLEY, Virgin Gorda, VI - The rush was on yesterday May 16, 2017 for a magazine that captures the 50 years of the Easter festivals on Virgin Gorda.

The magazine was launched at a simple ceremony at Fisher’s Cove in the presence of some of the persons responsible for the starting of the festival back in 1967.

Ms Ann Lennard was one of several persons who took on the responsibility of putting the document together and at the launch said, "This magazine, as was said before, has a wealth of information but there is so much more still to be told. We did not get to interview some other persons we wanted to but we will get it documented."

Representing the Department of Culture, Mrs Luce Hodge-Smith challenged person to ensure to get a copy of the magazine because the information it has goes beyond a normal reading. "A lot of the information in this magazine will be very useful for school children. It's the kind of information they are usually looking for assignment."

Chairman of the VI Festivals and Fairs Committee, Mr Trefor A. Grant and Chairperson of the Virgin Gorda Easter Festival Committee, Ms Sasha D. A. Flax were also present and thanked those who played an integral role in putting together the magazine, sponsoring events of Easter festival over the years, and those who gave of their services selflessly.

The magazine is now on sale for $10.
