Tampa Bay group remembers Bartica School
The Guyanese Cultural Network of Tampa Bay, Florida, decided to come to the aid of Two Miles Primary School, Bartica recently.
The group is headed by Wayne Forde and comprises people from various parts of Guyana, among them Mark and Donette Wyatt who are from Bartica.
Each year, the organization would identify a school in some part of the country for donations. This year the school was the one in Bartica.
The donations were presented by Leon Greaves, a former policeman who served in Bartica Police Traffic department for a number of years in the 1970s.
Mr Greaves said that his daughter, a member of the Tampa Bay group, was responsible for mobilizing and posting the items for the school children.
Headmistress Bernadette Williams was very thankful for the donation of back packs that contained books and writing material for the school children.
Aiding in the distribution was Regional Chairman Holbert Knights.
