Maypole

The Maypole Committee is devoted to maintaining a Bavarian Tradition within our Canadian culture. This Committee brings a visual event to our guests and visitors, which is something they may not see or experience anywhere else. This Committee must also facilitate a safe environment where specific health and safety rules are followed, so as to ensure safety of both spectators and volunteers. An honourary Baumeister is designated for every lift and is given a ceremonial pin for his/her participation (a way in which to include the community/visitors).
