Good day and God’s blessings. This year’s emancipation holidays fall within a difficult period of BVI history. Still reeling from the most devastating hurricanes in our history, we are in the midst of the worst pandemic in 100 years, which has now claimed more than 30 lives. We extend sincere condolences to the people of the Virgin Islands who have lost loved ones.
Mister Speaker, for some years now, the Department of Culture has celebrated International Museum Day whilst placing a focus on our Territory’s museums. Mr. Speaker, if you recall, last year, the celebrations for International Museum Day were completely virtual and were highlighted through the release of a virtual exhibition in a two-part series entitled, “From Perreen Georges to Noel Lloyd: Heroes and Freedom Fighters.”
The public is invited to the “Math Made Easy: Consumer Arithmetic Series” book launch by local author and educator Khalilah Callwood on Wednesday, March 31, at 5:30 p.m. at the Noel Lloyd Positive Action Movement Park.
