At 5:00 last night at the Lions Den there was a good turnout to hear what this new group was proposing. This was spear headed by Alito and Rebecca Arceo and began with a video presentation of the underwater wonder of Hol Chan and surrounding area.
A mission statement was read (sorry I don’t have a copy right now) and forms were handed out whereby people could sign up as a member of this group. I’m guessing there were at least 75 people in the audience and the vast majority was Belizean.
It was a very positive meeting with lots of good ideas tossed out for consideration. Although the preservation of the area slated to be developed as South Beach is the current concern the project is much broader.
There will be meeting each Wednesday night up to the election. The one next week will again be held at 5:00 at the Lions Den. The following week it is slated for the high school auditorium.
PLEASE – if you are here on the island – ATTEND. If you are not here hopefully you join as a member. AND – as always donations are accepted.
Anyone who can add information here – please do.
