The Linden International Reunion Association (LIRA) a Seventh Day Adventist Organization in the USA is undertaking projects to beautify and enhance the image of Linden.
Under the theme “Beauty for ashes, reflect, renew and rejoice” LIRA is cleaning the river front.
According to the President of LIRA Dr. Raynold Lewis the theme is in accordance with the projects planned. He said that the reason for cleaning the river front is rooted in a visit in 2010. The waterfront was clean and it gave the town a boost.
“Now it is dirty because the people of the community are not educated about health and the environment and it must be sustained. It is good but not sustainable unless the public is educated about recycling and that they must not litter. They must learn how to sustain it.”
Dr. Raynold Lewis said that the organization needs to pay tribute to women in the community, especially to five of the women who perished in the Sun Chapman tragedy on July 6, 1964.
They were Adventists and very strong women who laid a foundation for their children. There was Mrs. Carmen Carryl whose son, Dr. Stephen Carryl, is a surgeon and the president of OMAT, an overseas medical team which visits Linden every year to render medical assistance to the community.
Chairman of the Interim Management Committee, Orrin Gordon, said that he sees the cleaning of the river front as an enhancement of the town.
He lent support by giving the resources needed such as the trucks to clear away the debris.
Among the events planned by LIRA are an acquaintance and re-acquaintance meeting Wednesday night at Peniel SDA Church where old members living overseas will acquaint and re acquaint with members here.
On Saturday all the SDA churches in Linden will meet at the Linden Technical Institute ground for one service with Dr. Garnett. On Sunday morning there will be a devotion service with Pastor Caesar.
