City Hall sits with the elderly

And while the GSU visited the homes of alleged criminals, other public servants gave some other city residents a welcome home visit.  Dozens of elderly men and women at the Sister Cecilia Home were treated for lunch today by members of the Belize City Council.  Mayor Darrell Bradley took time out of his otherwise busy schedule to serve them each a hearty meal.  The occasion is CitCo’s one-year anniversary, a milestone which, according to Mayor Bradley, marks the achievements and shortfalls of his administration since taking office.  The show of appreciation for senior citizens was one of several events planned for the next few days in commemoration of City Council Week.

“When we reflected on what we wanted to do for our one-year anniversary service was important, and an important component so we, as a body, chose one community service project and we chose to come to the Sister Cecilia Home and just to share a meal with them in the afternoon and just to see, sit down, spend some time with them.  I met Mr. Webster, who worked with the city council, coincidentally, for twenty-three years.  So I’m learning that they have a lot of value in our society and just sitting and sharing their experiences, I’ve been privileged to be here this afternoon.  I think that at certain milestones it’s important to pause and reflect on what has been done good and what shortcomings there are so that you could improve going forward.  And in all countries there is always a period after one year that’s marked.  Of course you know that we did a hundred plan, we did a hundred day marker and now we’re at one year and what we want is for residents of Belize City to take a pause and to look at what they see and to criticize constructively what they don’t like and to celebrate and respect what they do like.  What we have done is that we have chosen to mark this week with a week of activities.”

 

Following lunch with the elderly, the councilors moved on to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where they adopted a ward and proceeded to give it a facelift.

    Charitable service is always good — sometimes for the soul, sometimes for politics. The Bible says to pray and do your good works in private, not to call the television cameras out so you can record a campaign commercial.

    A for effort, F for sincerity.
