Senior Citizens Think Back

Seniors reminisce at Town Hall
by Dorian Nuñez The elderly, but young at heart, gathered at the town hall on Thursday, June 18" to participate in a first of its kind event here in San Pedro. The San Pedro Celebrations Committee held a Senior Citizen Reminiscence Night at the Town Hall. The night was dedicated to our beloved senior citizens; a celebration in part of San Pedro's 150' Birthday.

Wil Nuñez and his duo serenaded the gathering as refreshments were being served. They had the folks singing along to some of the most memorable songs of the past.

Don Lucio Guerrero conducted the open discussion which allowed attendants to openly converse about a wide range of topics. It was great seeing people's eyes pop open at any mention of something that brought back memories. There were smiles, laughter, applause and plenty to talk about. Everyone burst into chatter at reference to major happenings in town. Topics of conversation included the salt mines, our Maya ancestors, the locales and coconut farming, hurricanes, the great epidemic and the Diva de San Pedro Celebrations.

Don Lucio gave the blessing of the meal and a video of San Pedro dating back to 1970 was played. Mayor Alberto GnuñHz gave the closing remarks and thanked everybody for their participation in such a lovely event.
