Melita's new Banana Statue should have a name sometime this weekend.

The town's tourism committee plans to meet to consider the 200 plus names submitted for the 30 foot statue and its blue jay sidekick.

Tanis Chalmers is Melita's Economic Development Officer. She says it's not easy picking a name.


Chalmers says the name will be used for promotional purposes and to give the statue an identity.
