Thursday, July 26, 2014. PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The September celebrations are still a good two months away, but the National Celebrations Commission today announced the theme for this year’s festivities.
According to a press release issued this morning the theme is: “Industrious hands, intelligent minds, together for Belize.”
The theme will be used as Belize this year celebrates the 216th anniversary of the Battle of St. George’s Caye and the 33rd anniversary of the nation’s independence.
The NCC says that the theme was submitted by Denise Bowman and her submission was chosen because “it evokes a spirit of nationalism and a call to work for Belize.
Overall, the selected theme encourages national unity and a call to recognize how we can contribute to the development of Belize.”
