[www.inewsguyana.com] – Thousands of Guyanese stretching from Number 63 Village, Corentyne, Region Six to Meten-Meer-Zorg on the West Coast of Demerara, Region Three were given the opportunity to interact with President Donald Ramotar on Monday, April 06 as he visited several hubs across the country, which are used to facilitate the symbolic kite flying.
As part of his Easter Monday activities, the President started at the Number 63 Beach where he met with families who had gathered at the popular site to be a part of the celebration.
While mingling and catching up on the excitement at the beach, the President also took time out to take photographs with eager families. President Ramotar also assisted in giving out prizes for the Ministry of Tourism’s Kite flying competition.
The Head of State then made his way to the Lusignan Golf Course on the East Coast of Demerara where he met with persons there who were also a part of the kite flying exercise.
After his brief stop at that location, the President made his way to the Joe Vieira Park on the West Bank of Demerara where again he met and interacted with patrons at that location.
Shortly after that stop, the President then made his way to Meten-Meer-Zorg on the West Coast of Demerara where he continued his interactive session with happy kite flyers.
In summing up his Easter Day activities, the President said he relished the opportunity to have rubbed shoulders with so many Guyanese of all walks of life in one day. Speaking from what he experienced at every visit, the Head of State said he got a firsthand look at why the United Nations had stated that Guyanese are some of the happiest people.
President Ramotar said he was touched by the unity shown by the thousands who had gathered at every location he visited, noting that this year’s celebration was indeed special. [Extracted and modified from GINA]
