PHILIPSBURG–The Prince Bernhard Cultural Fund Caribbean Region PBCCG celebrated its 65th anniversary on Monday. In those 65 years, the Fund has played a very active and important role in the development of the arts, culture and nature on the islands. To this effect, the Prince Bernhard Fund provides financial support and advice for the cultural, artistic and natural development of Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, St. Maarten, St. Eustatius and Saba. “We experience this development from close by, and see so many beautiful things, so much talent, and such amazing energy, and realize every day that we live in an extraordinary community.
A community with a beautiful identity which expresses itself in projects which we make possible. That is reason for a party in itself,” Prince Bernhard Cultural Fund said in a statement on the occasion of its 65th anniversary.
The organization said 65 years of existence is no reason for retirement. To the contrary. “We will continue with the right energy and work daily in optimizing our possibilities,” it was stated.
The Prince Bernhard Fund said it will celebrate the special occasion “at different moments and in a special way” with the residents of the islands. More information will be provided on PBCCG’s Facebook page and on its website.
