Rose Hall Town anniversary activities rescheduled
The opening of the Rose Hall Town Anniversary and Development Organization (RHTADO) in collaboration with the Rose Hall Town Day committee’s 42nd Town Week celebrations which was scheduled to commence on Sunday will now begin on Thursday with a grand opening ceremony.
The almost two weeks of activities will be held under the theme ‘Unity for a better community’.
According to coordinator Andrew Griffith, a number of initiatives have been planned for the two weeks of activities. A grand opening ceremony is planned while there will be a number of sporting events, which will include cycling and other outdoor events.
The activities will culminate will a grand Street Fair and Exhibition. Other activities on the programme include Spelling ‘B’ competition, senior citizens and kids’ day. Another highlight will be a day with the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) which will see the soldiers involved in a number of activities including paratrooping.
A number of organizations, including government ministries and corporate agencies have so far indicated their willingness to be a part of the activities planned by RHTADO, which Griffith formed in 2004 in an effort to do something tangible for the town.
The group has accomplished a number of things, including hosting the GDF paratroopers, organizing the Corentyne Main Lime, and organizing a Go Green Fair in recognition of the LCDS initiative, in addition to hosting the yearly Rose Hall Town Anniversary programme.
According to Griffith, this year the initiative plans to be bigger and better than before.
Rose Hall town was founded on September 20, 1970.
