B.D.F. Celebrates 37th Anniversary

Kenroy Smith

The Belize Defense Force wants you to head out to their Ladyville Compound tomorrow for the annual B.D.F. Day. The fun, family event starts at nine in the morning and runs through until seven in the night. Captain Kenroy Smith says that there will be lots to see and do and your support will go towards worthy B.D.F. programs.

 

Kenroy Smith, Captain, B.D.F.

“Through-out the course of the day you can expect to have music by the DJs. We are having DJ BiggaFord and DJ Motion throughout the day. There will be military displays and hostage drill displays by the recruits and we are also having civilians displays, primarily by the House of Shotokan. They will be doing a karate display and ballet.”

“So, why should the public-family and friends, come out and support?”

 

Kenroy Smith

“Well, we are encouraging the general public to come and support the B.D.F. Open Day simply because the proceeds generated from this day goes to assist the soldiers in terms of scholarships and other welfare matters that arise and the force is not able to assist them.”

“So, if they are sure to come out, they will have fun?”

 

Kenroy Smith

“Most definitely. This year we are trying to cater to the kids. We will have bouncy house and other smaller rides and events for the kids.”

“So after the day event, is that it, or is there anything special in the night?”

 

Kenroy Smith

“For the night itself, we have a grand dance and that follow immediately after the day’s activity. It starts at eight in the night and goes up to two a.m. This year we are having the dance in a closed environment, so it will be a nice venue which will afford us to have a VIP section this year. The admission will be fifteen dollars and the VIP will be fifty dollars which allows you to go inside the dance and allows you to drink Traveller’s products for free all night.”

 

The Celebration of B.D.F. Day coincides with the Force’s thirty-seventh anniversary.
