One of its main areas of concentration is the executing of activities for the elderly population of the community. Customarily the committee distributes hampers to at least one person over the age of 65 years on a monthly basis. Though the committee plans to continue with this initiative in 2016 it has organized a grand lunch for the elderly residents of Belle Vue.
This year lunch has been slated for the 20th December, 2015 from 1:00 pm at the Belle Vue Human Resource Development Centre. Thus, we invite all elderly residents of Belle Vue and environs who are 60 years and over to make a special effort to attend this very important activity. In addition to being fed a three course meal, the elderly residents will be entertained by one of the premier folk bands of Saint Lucia, Avot Sevis.
The committee has organized a lunch for the elderly to create an avenue for them to socialize with each other. Also, we intend to use this activity to say thank you to the elderly for the contribution they have made to the development of Belle Vue. Accordingly, we will be awarding four cultural icons.
These icons include Patricia ‘Teetin’ Emmanuel, Lewis ‘Rogers’, Noel, Raymond ‘Ramie’ Joseph, and Daniel Estaphane for the sterling contribution they have made to folk culture.
