The organizing committee has deliberately planned the breakfast as a meeting with a purpose to discount the trials and tribulations, the deaths and debts the populace has had to endure in spite of a lofty tradition of purchasing their community 175 years ago.
Victoria needs all its peoples irrespective of their station in life. The purpose of the breakfast morning is to rekindle and recapture the spirit of togetherness and productivity.

Scores of invitees to fourth of July American Independence Day celebration in Guyana are reeling from post traumatic stress disorder after acting foreign affairs minister Ms Priya Manickchand wailed into the Obama administration accusing the outgoing ambassador of crossing an imaginary red line, and meddling in its business.
The plural diverse multiethnic multicultural and multinational invitees booed and jeered the ‘PSYCHO-ILLOGICAL’ rant of the scripted divisionary message which underscored the lukewarm relationship between the PPP administration and the Obama administration. At the end in total embarrassment and without remorse Ms Manickchand accompanied by Gail Texeira, special advisor to the president of Guyana, departed the Sowari. Continue reading

Over the last four weeks, four of Victoria’s families exchanged wedding vows in just as many separate ceremonies across the diaspora.
First in line, was the eldest son of Victoria’s premier social trycoon Wia Horace Craigwell at a simple ceremony in Stone Mountain Georgia.

For both categories. The repayment is rated at US 100.00 for every five thousand dollars. Bi weekly, the seller reserves the right to put a lien on your wages and the item purchased under the brinksmanship of the new governor of the bank of Guyana, Dr Ganga.
