On Wednesday February 23, 2011 at 10.00 am the Ministry of Community Development’s St. Patrick West district office hosted its inaugural Clean and Beautification Project at Festival Square, Mahaica, Point Fortin under the theme, “Plant a tree, Beautify your Community.”
Approximately 150 trees (fruits and flowers) were distributed to community groups in Mahaica in an effort to show them the importance of beautifying their offices and homes. The project took place with the incorporation of groups currently participating in the Prime Minister’s Beautification Competition (formerly the Environmental Sanitation Competition).
Present at the event were Mayor of Point Fortin, His Worship Alderman Clyde Paul, the Deputy CEO of the Point Fortin Borough Corporation, Donna Mae Taylor, Susan Corbett, Director, Community Development Division, Gwendolyn Salick, Coordinator of the Prime Minister’s Best Village Trophy Competition and Cynthia Lennon who represented the Member of Parliament for Point Fortin. Also present were Community Development and Best Village Officers of the St Patrick’s district and other specially invited guests and residents of Point Fortin and environs.
