Selena Weiers, current president of the Billy Barker Days Society, gave a few words of thanks and introduced the cogs that turn the wheels for the four-day celebration: the Billy Barker Days Society members. Many of them have been helping out for well over 20 years and keep volunteering again and again.

Acting Mayor Scott Elliott also discussed how important the event is and the City’s pleasure at being able to partner in making it all happen.

After a delicious dinner catered by Save-On-Foods, the sponsors were all provided with Billy Barker Days plaques for their contribution.

This year, Billy Barker Days takes place July 18 to July 21.
