The San Pedro Christmas Lighted Boat Parade committee members presented checks to two island organization and one school on Tuesday, January 12th, at the San Pedro Town Council offices. After a successful boat parade last year, the committee managed to pay their expenses while profits were donated to the benefit of the community.

    Donations were handed out to the San Pedro AIDS Commission in the sum of $1,500 while Holy Cross Anglican School and the Calendar Girls committee received $750 each. Receiving the check on behalf of the AIDS Commission was President Felix Ayuso who explained that the monies will go toward their education campaign. “The check will also help to refurbish our signs both at the San Pedro Roman Catholic School and at the San Pedro High School. Education is important when it comes to AIDS Awareness,” explained Ayuso. Mrs. Francis Wilson received the check on behalf of Holy Cross Anglican School and commented that the money will go toward the school’s feeding program. “As people know, we feed 500 students every day. They receive breakfast, a fruit snack and lunch daily. This money is greatly appreciated.” On behalf of the Calendar Girls Club was Eve Dirnback who stated that the money will go towards the completion of the San Pedro Roman Catholic School cafeteria. “It is great to see that that project is coming closer and closer to completion. Soon the students will have someplace in their school grounds where they can go and enjoy a delicious and healthy lunch,” she expressed.

    “It is a way of giving back to the community that made this year’s Boat Parade a success,” commented Chairlady of the committee Jan Brown. “It has been a tough few months and businesses still gave from their heart and we just wanted to share the little bit of profit we made with the community,” she ended.

Holiday Boat Parade Committee Gives Back To The Community

The San Pedro Holiday Boat Parade Committee has been working arduously year after year to provide residents every Christmas a spectacular Lighted Boat Parade. Businesses are always willing to donate to this committee and with additional funds collected this year, Jan Brown, Chairlady of the Boat Parade Committee was more than pleased to hand out monetary donations to three organizations in the island on Tuesday, January 12, at the San Pedro Town Council.

For the second year now, both the San Pedro AIDS Commission and the Holy Cross Anglican School received a donation. Mrs. Eve Dirnback of the Calendar Club and soul founder of the R.C. School Cafeteria project was the third to receive the donation and was very grateful for the donation as help is needed to finish off the project.

Mr. Felix Ayuso and Mr. Nesher Acosta of the San Pedro AIDS Commision also received a check and stated that the money will go towards the reconstruction of murals around town promoting HIV/AIDS awareness, as well as to financially assist persons with HIV.

Mr. Vernon Wilson and Mrs. Frances Wilson of the Holy Cross Anglican School accepted with much gusto their donation which will be used for the school’s feeding program. The feeding program consists of providing breakfast, snacks and lunch for 500 students at no cost on a daily basis.

Anyone wishing to donate or volunteer to any of these organizations/programs can call any of the following contact numbers: Felix Ayuso (SP AIDS Commision) – 663-9922, Mrs. Eve Dirnback (Calendar Club) – 623-9962 or 226-4440 and the Holy Cross Anglican School – 226-3456.

Those present at the donation handing out event were Jan Brown, Bob Hamilton, Kim Bierman and Kathy Niemiec (members of the SP Boat Parade Committee). Kudos to the Boat Parade Committee for having the residents of San Pedro at heart!
