Ms. Earlene Maynard of Mount Lily, the patron for the 2022 Christmas Tree Lighting in Charlestown, urged the Nevisian public to reflect on the goodness of God and his blessings.
She was at the time responding to the Department of Community Development’s decision to honour her at its first and major Christmas tree lighting ceremony for 2022 for her contribution to education. The event was held at the War Memorial in Charlestown on December 07, 2022.
“To all of us, let us use this Christmas Season to reflect on the goodness of God and his blessings upon us. Therefore, let us share the spirit of love, friendship, laughter, kindness and encouragement for these attributes are the true meaning of Christmas. Let us redeem our island and return to these values that held us together over the years.
