~ Database being developed ~
Cul de Sac, St. Maarten — The St. Maarten Guyanese Association (SMGA) has resumed its weekly meetings and is encouraging all nationals of Guyana to attend on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 7:30pm. The meeting will be held at its 158 B Back Street location in Philipsburg.
The SMGA held its first post-Hurricane Irma meeting last Thursday (October 12, 2017), where persons were updated on matters of concern and interim board members selected. The association is currently asking all persons to attend Wednesday night’s meeting in order to provide information to begin developing a database of Guyanese and their descendants living on the island.
This information is needed in order to have a true reflection of the size of the Guyanese community so that in times of disaster, persons can be easily contacted and marked as safe. Additionally, the association wants to be able to assist where it can in all aspects, as outlined in its constitution.
