PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten - Good evening and welcome to this New Year's Reception. Marie-Louise and I are delighted to celebrate the start of 2014 with you, here on the captain Hodge Warf in the heart of our capital Philipsburg. To all present and to the people of our beautiful Sint Maarten, we extend warm greetings and best wishes for the year ahead. In keeping with that wish, I have entitled my message: Shaping Our Nation's Future.
My Fellow Sint Maarteners,
I extend warm Christmas greetings to you and yours at home and abroad.
I do so in the spirit of the words of the apostle Paul which call for us to continue to honor our "...... Obligation To Love One Another" (Romans 13:8). Words that breathe the enduring gift of Christmas.
Dear Fellow Citizens of St. Maarten,
I again have the privilege to wish each and every one of you a blessed and joyous Christmas. I hope that you will be able to spend this holiday with your friends, families and loved ones and that you may be able to share in the joy which this season brings with it. At Christmas we remember firstly the birth of Christ that heralded the salvation of mankind. This is why we celebrate.
