SACNW Sign Painting


Press Release – South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch (SACNW) – April 23, 2013 –

On Saturday April 20th, students of San Pedro High School (Community Service and enjoyment) and members of the SACNW (South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch) gathered at Lone Star Grill and Cantina for a very productive and creative afternoon in a continuing effort to improve the cleanliness of South Ambergris Caye.

With bright neon colors, they painted more than 24 signs with catchy slogans such as LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE, TRASH IN DA CAN MAN, FEED DA CAN MAN, STASH THE TRASH, KEEP LA ISLA BONITA CLEAN, and NO LITTA IS MO BETTA. This third painting event helps promote cleanliness and safety not only in the south but for the entire Isla Bonita. Everyone enjoyed some well deserved snacks, sodas, lots of cupcakes and cake after completing the artwork.
The signs will be displayed at the next SACNW General Meeting and then installed by the roadside in hopes to remind people not to litter and to promote community spirit.
