Screen_Shot_2015-05-11_at_8.26.21_PMIn honour and celebration of the most important woman in our life, the Orange Walk Town Council, as is customary, took time out to show appreciation and love to the mothers of town. On Saturday, Central Park was buzzing with activity and according to Mayor Kevin Bernard, it’s simply a token of love and appreciation for the backbone of any family.

“We believe that at the end of the day we must honour our mothers. Normally we would have a mass and it is unfortunate that we could not get a priest to actually do the mass but I must thank Pastor Lino for doing the blessings for us today. At the end we want to salute our mothers and I want to take this opportunity to wish all our mothers a happy mother’s day. I wish to say the same to my mother and to my mother-in-law and of course my wife and all the mothers of Orange Walk at the end of the day they are the ones that mold us so we must  give back as a community to our mother and this is one way how we do so."

And if you are wondering what prompted an ailing Mayor to be present at the event despite doctor’s orders to stay in bed, we asked him and here is his response.

“I found it necessary to come out today although the doctor has told me that I should not be out of bed but I decided to come and celebrate a short while with the others. I am doing ok and I should be back in the office in a week and a half or so, so I am eager to come back an work for the people and even though I am home I still continue to do my work. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all those who extended their greetings to me while I underwent the surgery and of course with all their prayers and blessings I am here today and I am glad to be part of this event. “

In absence of Mayor Bernard, Ladrick Shepperd has been appointed as acting Mayor.
