I acknowledge the protocol which has already been established, and I again welcome you to the beginning of our very first Culture and Tourism Month. I will take this opportunity to give some context for the fusion of culture and tourism in the month of November and clearly articulate a very clear vision for culture during my tenure as Culture Minister.
The Territory is celebrating its first Culture and Tourism Month during November under the theme, “BVILove is our Culture” and slogan “Virgin Islands Cultural Roots Run Deep. Unity and Togetherness are the Crops We Reap!”
Toriah Pryce is the winner of the 2020 Gen Y Factor Glee Edition: Battle of the Schools. Ms. Pryce who is a student of the Bregado Flax Educational Centre took the prizes for both segments: Groovy and Power along with five thousand dollars.
People of the Virgin Islands, Good Day and God’s Blessings to all of you.
Today is an important day in the life and legacy of Virgin Islanders and the Virgin Islands.
It is Territory Day!
Virgin Islands Day!
The observance of Territory Day is usually marked with us putting on a display of our culture and talents, followed by a ceremonial gathering that includes speeches, poems, historical readings and other forms of reflections.
