State House, Main Street, Georgetown resonated with the happy sounds of children today, as they enjoyed themselves at a Christmas party organised by the First Lady. The children were treated to goodies provided by the First Lady Foundation, and were also serenaded with appropriate Christmas songs and carols, while the enthusiastic ones took the opportunity to have their faces colourfully painted.

President Ramotar noted that the foundation was elated at being able to contribute to adding joy and happiness to the children’s life at this time of year.


“Christmas as you know is this very happy time of the year, it’s a festive season, a season of giving and receiving, a season of love and joy, and it’s a season for particularly our children to enjoy themselves.”
