The month of May is extra special to many persons, considering that it is filled with activities in honor of mothers. In Corozal Bay, while Mother’s Day has come and gone, mothers are still being celebrated and yesterday PUP Standard Bearer Gregorio ‘Papas’ Garcia Jr. hosted a special event for all mothers from Corozal Town who were in the mood to be pampered and serenaded.

Despite the scorching heat, the women of Corozal Town came out in numbers for the special Mother’s Day Program organized by P.U.P Corozal Bay Standard Bearer Gregorio Garcia Jr. and his team.
The event was filled with raffles and prizes for the youngest and the eldest moms and for the mom with the most children. In fact from what we observed there was a prize for everyone.
Smiling faces and cheers were proof that the mothers were having a good time at the Mother’s Day Program which has now become a tradition for Team Papas.

“We have to really restructure our executive committee, the old committee or the former committee is still assisting us here at this time so it’s basically a sign of unity and this mother’s day event has always been the biggest tradition of the People United Party in Corozal Bay and it’s been running for fourteen years straight at this point. I think we have a good choice today and at least I will have to take time to thank my committee and especially the officer who has worked who have made this a success. One thing we have to blend into it is that at the end of the day we are all Corozaleno , it’s not about P.U.P or U.DP. We can do something for the mothers, something for the kids, something for the elderly, which is good we will continue with these projects and carry on.”
And to make moms feel extra special they were even serenaded by one of Corozal’s best rancheras singer Nasayin Montalvo.
Right after those delightful melodies it was time for mothers to get their groove on with no other than Captain Roby.
And that’s how Corozal moms spent their Sunday evening, feeling extra special thanks to Team Papas.
After the event lucky moms from Corozal Town were able to walk away with great prizes being raffled as part of the special tribute to mothers. The grand prize of a round trip to San Pedro for two, one night stay at Captain Morgan’s, one night stay at Ambergris Lake Villas, lunch for two at el fogon and el Torito Restaurants and a trip on a Catamaran for two was won by Dorita Gonzalez. The second prize of a washing machine was won by Clari Narvaez.
