Preparations started for Memorial Day

Preparations started for Memorial Day

GREAT BAY, St. Maarten – The preparations for Memorial Day, the National Day of Remembrance, which is the day that the victims who have died in wars or peacekeeping missions since the outbreak of World War II are commemorated, have commenced. The preparations include the relocation of the commemoration plaques at the Captain Hodge Wharf to a more publicly accessible location on the same Wharf. May 4 is a day that is recognized throughout the Dutch Kingdom of the Netherlands.  It is important for the general public to recognize this day as it not only acknowledges the victims that have fought to defend the Dutch Kingdom, but it is also a day that signifies the freedom of the Kingdom and its people. On May 4 all uniformed forces will participate in a silent march through Philipsburg at 3:30 p.m. The procession will lead from Clem Labega Square via Back Street, turn... Read more

Help prevent mosquito-borne diseases. Wear light colored clothing at dusk and use mosquito repellent

GREAT BAY, St. Maarten – The Collective Preventive Services (CPS), a government department under the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour, is calling on the community as well as visitors to wear light colored clothing at dusk; wear long sleeve shirts and pants; and use mosquito repellent to prevent being bitten by a mosquito that could possibly carrying a mosquito-borne disease such as dengue, chikungunya or zika. Visitors and residents are out and about enjoying the Carnival festivities, and taking the aforementioned preventative measure into consideration will go a long way in preventing one getting a mosquito-borne disease. Mosquito-borne diseases such as zika, dengue fever and chikungunya are transmitted by the female vector Aedes Aegypti mosquito. The Aedes Aegypti mosquito is distinguished by its markings. The body of the mosquito has alternate black and white horizontal stripes. Read more
