Public invited to participate in moonlight walk around AIA

A local group committed to the preservation and promotion of cultural heritage is inviting the public to join them for a moonlight walk around the Argyle airport site on Saturday, February 11.

National Treasures of St Vincent and the Grenadines said in a release that the walk will begin at 5 p.m. from the meeting place, which is “up the hill on the road at the Stubbs end at the top of the airport runway – the flat area on the right.”

Cars can be parked there and the walk will set off from that point, the release said.

“The route will be from the meeting point, which was part of what was known locally as ‘Crazy Camel’ Hill, back out to Mount Coke, north along the Windward Highway towards Argyle School; turning right onto the original Argyle road, heading south along coast, past Rawacou Resort then back to the starting point.”

The organizers say the hope is that some persons on the walk will share stories of the area or recount some experiences they have heard about. “Argyle in one of those places which was renowned for ‘sightings’ of various creatures such as the Jah Bless and the Rounce; however given that the area is so well lit and more populated these days, such ‘sightings’ seem to have ceased,” the release said.

Tee shirts for the walk will be available and are included in the cost of registration. Registration for the walk has started and forms may be collected at various companies in Kingstown and also from any member of the Board of National Treasures of SVG.

FLOW has kindly assisted National Treasures with the moonlight walk in which it is hoped many people will participate and bring along their families.
