The objective of the celebration was to raise funds to support Community development, especially the completion of a community centre, which was started some years ago.
The Chief, who is also an educationist advised the youth to desist from deviant behaviours and rather focus on education to create a sustainable future for themselves.
Nana Agyapong Ntrada II called on government and civil society organisations to support their community development.
Mr Samuel Adobah, the Executive Director of Network For Assin Development, commended the efforts of the Chief and opinion leaders for initiating several developmental projects.
He appealed to the natives of Assin Brofoyedur, who are in diaspora to support the development of the community and also called on investors to support the renovation of schools in the community.
“Development is a shared responsibility and therefore all should join to change the narrative of the community,” he said.
