On Sunday, September 19th, Belize observed National Service Day and the 10th anniversary of the passing of the Father of the Nation, the late Right Honourable George Cadle Price. San Pedro Town joined the national event, and Mayor Gualberto ‘Wally’ Nuñez and his Councillors, along with the island’s beauty ambassador Miss San Pedro Grace Brown, held a memorial ceremony to honor the Belizean hero. The ceremony in San Pedro included prayers, speeches, and tossing handfuls of flower petals into the sea.
Price was the founder of the People’s United Party, currently governing the country. San Pedro’s Town Council is also under a PUP administration. They remembered Price, who started a peaceful, constructive Belize Revolution in 1950 with a phrase, ‘Creation was not finished at the dawn of this earth, but creation continues, and we have a lot to do to make the world a better place.” Price fought fiercely for Belize, a verbal battle that rewarded Belizeans with independence on September 21st, 1981, from Great Britain.Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
