Residents from the communities of Scottshead, Soufriere, Gallion and Pointe Michel all joined hands in various activities to clean up and beautify their communities on Community Day of Service on Wednesday.

The projects in the communities were all dubbed a success.

“This year has been successful since more people turned out compared to last year and there were a lot more projects going on this year as well,” Assistant youth Officer for Roseau South, Malissa Jno Lewis, told Dominica News Online on Thursday. “A lot of people turned out to support the event, especially the young people and the Parliamentary Representative Ian Pinard.”

According to her, the St Mark’s Development Committee, together with the Village Council in Scottshead, got the Scottshead Labour Youth Organization (LYO) and the rounders group from the community, the Matadors, to do a beach cleanup at Caribantie (an area in Scottshead).

“They did a beach cleanup and they planted flowers in tires,” she said.

Jno Lewis stated further that three different projects were undertaken in the Soufriere community.

“I gathered the young people at the bay side, we cleaned the beach area,” she stated. “The next project was at a place called Source in Soufriere where the young men were helping to unblock the drain in that area.”

She said this was done in order to prevent mosquitoes from breeding, to keep the area clean and have a free flow of water.

“The last project was at the Soufriere Primary School organized by members of the St Mark’s Catholic Youth Group… they cleaned up around the school surroundings and then they painted multiplication tables,” Jno Baptiste explained.

Members of the communities of Gallion and Pointe Michel also organized a beautification project where they cleaned the area and planted flowers in tires.

Jno Lewis thanked all the people who participated in the projects, especially the young people, the village council and Pinard for their hard work during the activities.

    Excellent clean-up for love of community. Cooperation goes a long way. Note what love and cooperation could do. Keep it up.
    Never mind which Party you support. Do not make an issue out of it. Human beings possess their individual character and personally traits and hardly ever agree on a topic. Be free to agree and disagree amicably without harming others, be it verbally.
    Keep in mind that it is one country, Dominica, your Nation What affects it will affect nationals. Everyone must strive to get along for their own benefit.
    United we stand. Divided we fall.
    God’s love, harmony, peace and unity!

    Good work. But please remember to take care of the flowers throughout the year (water, weeding etc)) so that they do not die off and the same project has to be done all over again next year!
