San Pedro Town turns 31 on November 27th, 2015, and like every islander, the Staff, Councilors and myself, Daniel Guerrero, Mayor of San Pedro Town, take this opportunity to salute all the residents of Ambergris Caye on such occasion. This year,The San Pedro Town Council decided to be more educational and inclusive and as such believed that the occasion would be more fitting to showcase to our students and general citizenry, how far we have come as a community and town.

To celebrate our 31st Township Day, the doors of our newly renovated building will be the venue for an Open House Day, in which the students and the community can tour our renovated facility, learn about the services offered at the council, familiarize themselves with the office spaces and interact with the staff and elected town officials. We believe that by learning more about our town, its pastleaders, the transformation of our town from a coconut-industry dependentcommunity to a fishing village and now to a tourism town, it will bring about a true sense of civic pride and ownership towards our beautiful town.

In addition to our Open House Day, the San Pedro Town Council has officially signed a contract to pave Tropical Wave Street as part of our Township Day celebration.This of course, is in accordance with our commitment to continue the transformationof this municipality embarked on over the past four years.

We continue to thank the many leaders who served our town from the heart,who gave selflessly to the development of our island and who secured that ourresidents have a vibrant community. We also celebrate those people, who day in and day out, work tirelessly to build the social, economic and tourism fabric of the island. It is just fitting on such occasion, to thank all our donors in the private sector who contributed financially towards the newly renovated Town Hall.

Today we celebrate 31 years of our evolution from a small fishing village to a town highly known for its tourism and hospitality. We celebrate all our founders who helped in achieving this grand milestone and we also celebrate everyone whom day by day contribute to the development and growth of this town.

We take this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and safe 31st Township Day Celebration!
