Island PUP celebrates National Service Day
Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
As part of National Service Day, the Belize Rural South (BRS) People’s United Party (PUP) held several activities to commemorate the Father of Our Nation, Right Honorable George Cadle Price. Throughout Friday, September 19th party members participated in several community service activities including a beach clean-up, town upkeep and visiting the elderly.
Later in the evening, a procession was held. Party members departed from the BRS PUP office with candles, flags and George Cadle Price portraits on hand as they made their way across town core to the San Pedro Roman Catholic Church. Immediately after the procession, a mass of thanksgiving was held.
National Service Day honors Right Honorable George Cadle Price’s belief that happiness comes from serving others and not oneself.
