This year we will be celebrating our day on Sunday, June 26, 2016 due to the fact that June 21, 2016 fell on a Tuesday. “This is a day where we are inviting all the residents of these two districts to come and celebrate this your special day, says Ms. Angelica Chittick, President of the Council. It is also a day where we get to know our neighbors better.
Many times we live in a community and we don’t even know who lives next to us. An invitation is also extended to the general public as we expect this day to grow bigger and bigger every year with your continued support.
On this day, Sunday, June 26, 2016 we are organizing many activities such as wheel barrow races, running races, jumping in the bag, tug a war and of course the high light of the events is always our basketball one day knock out. All these activities start from 10.00 am and ends at 8.00 pm.
To the basketball players we expect you to acquire a registration form from any of the members of the community council to participate in the knock out. Let’s show them what a real basketball knock out is all about. If you think the Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers was a nail biting game seven then prepare for a trilling knock out this Sunday, June 26, 2016 in Middle Region at the Alec “the Butcher” Richardson Basketball court.
This is a very special year as together with the Shoot Hoops No Guns program we are celebrating this day. There will be some interesting games for ages 12 years to 17 and 18 years to 26 and then the thriller 26 years plus. Music will be provided by the bands Da Big Bad Xp from Middle Region, Nuff Respect and DJ Sheff. There will be lots to drink and snack on during this festive Middle Region & Defiance day celebration.
We will be closing off the Middle Region Road from the Hulda B. Richardson Road until Ellis Drive as there will be no through traffic. Come and show the rest of St. Maarten how we celebrate Middle Region & Defiance Day this Sunday, June 26, 2016 from 10.00 am until 8.00 pm.
The Middle Region & Defiance Community Council is extending an invitation to all the residents of St. Maarten and visitors alike to come and celebrate Middle Region & Defiance Day on Sunday, June 26, 2016.
