Plans are ongoing for the annual Mother's Day celebration hosted by the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC). As part of the coordination and planning, on Thursday April 19th the SPTC received a donation from the Area Representative Hon. Manuel Heredia to help finance the event. A donation of $5,000 was handed over during a short ceremony at the SPTC office.

Mayor of San Pedro Town Daniel 'Danny' Guerrero received the donation and expressed gratitude for the generous gift. "It is something that I was not expecting and I must say how grateful I am. The money will go straight to help us with our Mother’s Day event," said Mayor Guerrero. According to Mayor Guerrero, the event which is scheduled for Saturday, May 12th at the Saca Chispa Field will be different from previous years. The SPTC has already begun work on a new bathroom facility at the old field which will be ready for the Mother's Day event.

In handing over the contribution, Heredia explained that the donation was a commitment made to the mothers of the island to assure that the event will continue to be held. "I am happy to be able to secure funds that will improve the Mother’s Day celebration," said the Heredia. The money was secured through the Ministry of Tourism.
