The Youth Link Foundation (YLF) has embraced the idea of renaming the Dutch Quarter Community Center in honor of Mr. Edgar Lynch. "We surely believe in honoring him, as he has undoubtedly served our island well," remarked Stuart Johnson President of YLF.
We are sadden by the news of the passing of our former State Secretary, former commissioner and Island Council member. "We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Mrs. Nilda Lynch-Arduin, his family and his friends," Johnson said.
The board of the YLF echoed the call by Member of Parliament (MP) William Marlin and MP Leroy de Weever in regards to the renaming of the community center recently.
The president of YLF reiterated the foundation’s stance to also name, the future educational institution projected to be build in Belvedere or any new educational institution to be named after the late Vance James Jr.
"It is time we learn, as a Country to honor and respect those individuals who have made priceless contributions towards the development of our island and its people," Johnson concluded.
