My fellow citizens, residents, friends and visitors, the 2016 Christmas and Holiday Season is again in full swing, as we celebrate the birth of our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ. This is a very joyous time of year, celebrated by millions around the world, including here in the Virgin Islands.
Merry Christmas Virgin Islands! I’m Myron V. Walwyn, Minister for Education and Culture and your Territorial Representative. It gives me pleasure to bring greetings to one all as we celebrate the birth of our saviour, Jesus Christ during this 2016 holiday season.
Season’s Greetings, I am Dr. Kedrick Pickering, Member for the Seventh District and Minister responsible for Natural Resources and Labour of the Government of the Virgin Islands. On behalf of the Ministry, I would like to take this opportunity to firstly, wish you and your family an exciting, magnificent and tranquil Holiday Season. I would also like to take this opportunity to send a special holiday greeting to the people of the Seventh Electoral District, who have placed their faith and confidence in me over the years. I will continue to do my best to serve them and our utmost to improve our community and by so doing, continue to build this great little Nation.
Christmas and the turn of the year is a special time; a time of celebration, a time to give thanks and a time for reflection. A time to celebrate the love and friendship of family and those close to us, to celebrate our achievements, both as a community and individually with those who have helped and supported us along the way. Christmas is also a time to look back over the year that will be drawing to a close.
