“About two years ago, we lost one of our founding members of the the Belmopan International Women’s Group to cancer, Jone Boxton, (she is missed; we wanted to keep her memory alive for everything that she has done for us) So, we decided to have a Jone Boxton memorial fund.  So, every year, we make a donation to establishment, some group of $500 to helping the good work that they do”

Reporter Emanuel Pech:  “So, this is done annually”.
