Wednesday, February 16, 2005 - The Saint Lucian public is being encouraged to participate actively, in the activities to mark Saint Lucia’s 26th Anniversary of Independence.

The Standing National Independence Anniversary Committee at its last meeting ahead of the Independence celebrations on Tuesday 22nd February, said all was in place to mark this great occasion in the development of the nation.

A mix of celebratory activities will call attention to the strides made in the development of the nation, as well as activities which will give thanks to God for sparing the island the ravages of natural disasters.

The National Ecumenical Service to be held at the Minor Basilca of the Immaculate Conception on Friday 18th at 3:00pm is open to the public and Saint Lucians are being urged to turn out in large numbers to give thanks, and to pray for the continued success of a young democracy.

A group from the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force has been in training over the last couple of days for the staging of the keenly anticipated, Independence Day Parade on Tuesday 22nd February at the Mindoo Philip Park from 9: 00 a.m.

Other activities include the National Sports Awards on Saturday 19th from 7:30 p.m. at the National Cultural Centre, the Concert of Praise and Inspiration on Sunday 20th at 5.00 p.m. at the National Cultural Centre and the Order of Saint Lucia Investiture Ceremony on Tuesday 22nd at Government House from 3:00 p.m.
