Yesterday, Labor Day, the Belize City Council held its third annual “Labor for Belize initiative”. The event encourages residents of Belize City to labor for their community through service and fellowship.
At San Cas Plaza where the opening ceremonies were held, some 468 participants gathered for remarks by Mayor Darrell Bradley.
Part takers were then deployed to 22 sites throughout Belize City to complete projects which included cleanup campaigns, tree planting along the Highways and Mahogany Street as well as upgrades to several parks and public spaces. At the end of the day more than 350 bags of trash were collected.
Participants included members of the business community, students, community groups and employees of the Belize City Council.
