Dominicans who are members of the Seventh Day Adventist, District One in St. Thomas, put on an impressive booth at the All Nations and Cultural Celebration held at the Fort Christian Parking Lot last weekend.

The activity was organized in observance of the 150th anniversary of Seventh Day Adventist church.

On display were various Dominican artifacts, promotional material and products.

Available for sale were delicious foods that truly represented the taste of the Nature Island. There was roast breadfruit and salt fish, smoke herring, Ton Ton (ground food), cocoa tea, bread fruit pie, soup, roasted corn, etc.

Many other Caribbean Islands were represented through the displays in the other booths.

All in all it was a very successful activity and very well organized.

Hats off to all the Dominicans who are members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church on St. Thomas for all their efforts at giving Dominica prominence at this wonderful event.

    CIA on the watch: Did you by any chance, even a slim one notice who submitted the article???? See CIA, Ms. Bannis Roberts knows how to give others their kudos.She does what she needs to do to promote Dominica in the VI’s. I know that she was at the event giving her full support and she provided some materials for the event. Stop being negative and get the facts before you comment.

    Where is Dominica representative for Diaspora affairs Laureen Bannis Roberts who lives/resides in St. Thomas, her names was not mentioned no where in this article, at least her presence would show that she is doing something for the perks that she received

      This is a total waste of Dominica tax payer’s money.She is not involved in NOTHING that promotes or has to do with Dominica.Many Dominicans does not know she exists as a representative or ambassador of Dominica. Total waste of money.

      With a “mortar pestle”. I was in a doubt about the spelling of the last word. As I checked it, I believe my Guardian Angel made the correct word cross my mind. How about that? I had not used that word in years. :)
      There are some small ones which could crush/pound herbs. I would love to get one like that.
