Belle Vue De­vel­op­ment Com­mit­tee to host lunch for se­niors

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

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.
