Be patriotic urges Baptiste

Plans for the 25th anniversary of this country’s Independence are being worked out.
But Tourism and Culture Minister is encouraging Vincentians to be patriotic, get involved in the silver jubilee observances and fly the national flag. {{more}}
A calendar of activities is being worked out by the Independence Committee and a theme as well as the programme of events is being finalised.
During that celebration, the national dress ought to have been determined and persons should be able to show their patriotism at Independence events bedecked in the national outfits.
Designs for the national dress have been on display and a final selection is expected to be made, in time for the October 27 parade.
