Courts, Education Ministry light up Main St for unity day

Courts Guyana Inc, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Department of Culture, Youth and Sport lit up Main Street Avenue once again.

A Courts tradition at Christmas time, the trees along the Main Street Avenue were once more lit up yesterday for the celebration of National Unity Day. Permanent Secretary of the Ministry Alfred King along with Courts Finance Manager Neil Boucher, began the countdown to the light up, with the assistance of a fair gathering outside of Courts.

King, in brief remarks, said that a year ago many were blessed with change that would unify all. He said the ministry has a responsibility to ensure that Guyanese reflect, celebrate and inspire during the jubilee year and that everyone is brought on board to experience this tremendous period in our history. “When we reflect on Guyana’s 50th, [we] must reflect on what unites us as a people and all Guyanese should endeavour to do so,” King posited.

Boucher said that as a company Courts feels a great sense of pride and accomplishment because even as Guyana would have grown, Courts within the nation has grown as well. “Even as the country celebrates Unity Day today, we hope that as the lights shine brightly individually but even much brighter and more beautifully when they shine together. Guyana as a whole will realize that while individually we shine, as a nation we will shine brighter,” Boucher told the gathering.

Meanwhile, persons who attended the lighting up ceremony also had the chance to participate in a quiz competition with the opportunity to win Guyana 50 souvenirs from Courts.
