Belle Vue Development Committee to host lunch for seniors
Belle Vue Development Committee is a communitybased organization which focuses on implementing activities geared towards empowering the residents of Belle Vue, Vieux Fort.
One of its main areas of concentration is the execut- ing of activities for the elderly population of the community. Customarily the committee distributes hampers on a monthly basis to at least one person over the age of 65 years.
Though the committee plans to continue with this initiative in 2015, it has also organized a grand lunch for the elderly residents of Belle Vue. This year lunch has been slated for Sunday 18th January from 12:30 pm at the Belle Vue Human Resource Development Centre.
All elderly residents of Belle Vue and environs who are 65 years and over are invited.
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 this lunch to create an avenue for the senior citizens to socialize with each other and to say thank you to them for the contribution they have made to the development of Belle Vue.
Accordingly four cultural icons will be awarded at Sunday’s event.
These icons include Jane Poleon, Peterson ‘Pepit’ Celise, Antoine ‘Mango’ Langellier, and Bethelmy Edward for the sterling contribution they have made to folk music over the years.
