The Semana Dominicana which ended Sunday, February 24th with the much-anticipated parade, has been possible thanks to TelEm Group of Companies which is one of the major sponsors. The parade route ran from Le Gran Marche to the TelEm parking lot.


"We are happy to support the Dominican Community in St. Maarten," said TelEm’s Jesus Richardson in presenting a check of US$2,500 to the organizers.

Milagros de Windt, the hardworking representative of the organizers conceded that perhaps due to the economy sponsorship was not as easy to find as in the past. "We are very grateful to TelEm for assisting us."

The new Miss Semana Dominicana, St. Maarten Academy PSVE’s Ms. Sepulveda, took home  a portion of the money donated by TelEm, along with the crown.

The Semana Dominicana – a week-long festivity that culminates with the celebration of the Independence Day of the Dominican Republic on February 27th , had its cultural climax last Saturday when reggaeton sensation, El Chuape hit the stage at Port de Plaisance.
