NGC 28th ANNUAL CONVENTION

Barranco is opening its doors in celebration of the 28th Annual Convention of National Garifuna Council which will also coincide with the launching of the 150thAnniversary of the founding of Barranco Village. The convention and celebrations will take place from March 9th – 11th 2012.

The Annual NGC Convention is the highest authority of the organization. Some of the main activities of the convention are: the presentation of the Board of Directors’ report which highlights the organization’s activities for the past year; educational discussions among the eleven branches of the NGC; the consideration and adoption of resolutions moved by the membership and the formulation of plans for the ensuing year. It should be noted that election of new officers takes place this year also.

The National Garifuna Council invites members and other interested persons to come along and make new friends, broaden their knowledge and have fun as they experience the Garifuna Culture! There will be exhibition, wreath Laying – Andy Palacio Grave, drumming and dancing! There will also be interesting discussion forums on:

•      Group Discussion on the themes in the Garifuna Agenda:

*Land

*Education

*Language & Culture

*Health

*Support for Economic & Community Development

*Social Issues

•      Role of Catholicism in the Garifuna Culture

It is expected that this year will once again have representation from all eleven branches and the Barranco community is excited to welcome all for the weekend in March.
