The Committee for St. Maarten’s Day 2009 and the Commissioner of Culture, Hyacinth Richardson, are asking all uniformed and cultural groups in the community of St. Maarten to attend an information meeting on Thursday, September 10th 2009.
The Uniformed groups are asked to attend the 7:00pm session and the cultural groups are requested to attend the 8:00pm session.
The meetings will take place in the Claude Wathey Legislative Hall of the Government Administration Building.
St. Maarten’s Day will once again experience two types of parades, namely, the official uniformed parade and the cultural parade.
The uniformed parade is open to all uniformed groups on the island from the Police Force of the Netherlands Antilles to the various scouting groups.
As for the cultural parade, this is open to all groups and/or organizations that would like to participate.
As we are looking forward to yet another grand St. Maarten’s Day celebration with a day full of activities and fun events for all, we are looking for the total involvement of all persons and/or organizations to make this event an extraordinary one.
