CitCo and Diamonds Int’l host Easter egg hunt for Bethel students

Easter is fast approaching, but today, it came early for students of Bethel Primary School who were treated to an Easter Egg Hunt. Diamonds International located within the Fort Street Tourism Village partnered with the Belize City Council for the event and this afternoon, some seventy-five plus students gathered at the Fort Street Memorial Park for a day of fun which included games, face-painting, temporary tattoos and a most exciting egg hunt.

“Every year we try to do something with one of the schools—something fun, something entertaining for the kids as well as inspirational for them to take home…something to think, something to grow on. We did contact the Belize City Council and we normally partner with them; they suggested Bethel Primary which we invited over for this Easter Egg Hunt a little before Easter.”

“I expressed to them that Bethel would be the school that would most want it. So we decided to go with Bethel Primary School. We did several things in order to get the park and we just decided to bring out the kids and have a fun day with them…with our staff, Belize City Council and Diamonds International.”

“We’ve been doing community service in different areas for some time now. It hasn’t been publicized before, but now we are getting a little more active and I guess you guys are noticing it a bit more now. We try to spread out a bit in different areas: school, working with the home for the elderly; we work with the City Council in terms of the environment…cleaning as well. So we’ve just branched out a whole lot.”
