PHILIPSBURG - The St. Maarten Carnival Development Foundation (SCDF) on Monday presented the first copies of the 2015 Carnival schedule to management of Scotiabank, the sponsor of the schedule for almost 20 years.  The SCDF also presented Bank Manager Raymond Green with one of its uniform shirts for 2015 which Scotiabank also sponsored again this year.

“We cannot express enough gratitude to Scotia for standing with the foundation for so many years. A true, dedicated partner that we can always count on,” SCDF President Mike Granger said. “Even in a day and age when so much is strictly digital, people clamor for these schedules. Hotel properties, airlines and other businesses make good use of them. They will be distributed island wide,” he said.

Granger said the partnership with Scotia goes past the provision of the schedules and uniform shirts. “Scotia is also where we conduct our business and they’ve been very, very good to the SCDF. Their staff is beyond cooperative with the SCDF, often giving our requests priority treatment and giving sound, honest banking advice,” Granger said while singling out Business Banking Manager Nicole Hodge and Business Banking Officer Samantha Blaize for their steadfast support.

Green said that Scotia is very pleased to be able to continue supporting St. Maarten’s Carnival. “Let me take this opportunity to commend Mike and the committee for the great efforts put forth to grow and improve Carnival. We at Scotiabank are committed to giving back to the community and are very pleased to be part of this important cultural event. We wish all St. Maarteners a great and safe Carnival.” (SCDF)
