Wednesday, February 23, 2005 - The Standing National Independence Anniversary Committee has said that all went well with the staging of activities to mark Saint Lucia’s 26th Anniversary of Independence.

The committee said the celebrations were memorable, because the event attracted wide support from the Saint Lucian public. The committee said it was grateful for the way the public turned out to the many events.

This year, a large crowd witnessed the parade at the Mindoo Phillip Park on Independence morning. The Concert of Praise and Inspiration at the National Cultural Centre was well attended, while the National Ecumenical Service at the Minor Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Castries saw more Saint Lucians coming out to the service.

The Committee expressed thanks to the electronic and print media for their support in publicising the events in the weeks and days leading up to Independence.

The collaboration of all the committees was said to have brought to life, this year’s theme: “Working together with Pride to Build Our Nation”.
