THE Region Two administration ushered in the Christmas spirit on Monday evening with the lighting of a 15-foot Christmas tree in the Anna Regina township. During a simple programme held in front of the regional State House, Robert Mc Curdy reflected on the holiday season. Mc Curdy, a Region Two staff member, reminded those
present that during this season the birth of Lord Jesus Christ is celebrated. He urged the gathering to remember Christ in their prayers and even in the hard times.
Greetings were extended by the region’s various programme managers. Regional Chairwoman, Vilma De Silva, who joined in switching on the lights said the Christmas season was for everyone to enjoy and have a merry time. “One thing I admire about Guyana is we are multi-cultured. Guyana is a real place to be. I therefore wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year,” De Silva said.
Meanwhile, Regional Vice-Chairman, Humace Odit, extended Christmas greetings to everyone present. He emphasised that it was a joyous occasion and he later wished everyone well for the season and told them to remember to take care of their health. Regional Executive Officer, Devanand Ramdatt, congratulated the staff for organising the programme. Ramdatt took note of the staff’s supportive disposition and said that Region Two can be an example of what unity is.
