By BBN Staff: Yesterday, Commander of Eastern Division in Belize City, Howell Gillett along with his staff members took 35 children from the immediate community to experience life in Crooked Tree Village.
The students were from four Belize City primary schools and were accompanied by several teachers on the tour.
The children went on a nature trail tour, experienced boat rides, horseback riding, and some of the boys were even given a free haircut.
Among the many activities they participated in, the students saw a real life demonstration of the making of the cashew seed and other local traditions.
Gillett thanked the teachers and the community workers who made the trip and tour possible and said, “we are truly impacting the lives of our young people through this kind of interaction.”
Founded in the early 18th century, Crooked Tree Village which is 33 miles from Belize City may be the oldest non-indigenous community in Belize. The village is an amazing destination for anyone who loves nature or anyone who enjoys a peaceful rural community with an interesting history and a beautiful setting.
