On Saturday October 1, Minister Dominic Gaskin joined scores of Barticians in observing the second annual National Tree Day.
The activities commenced with a simple ceremony at the Regional Democratic office where the Minister and Regional Chairman Gordon Bradford delivered brief remarks and planted trees along with Regional Executive Officer Roderick Edinboro.
The Minister then joined Mayor Gifford Marshall and Deputy Mayor Kamal Persuad in a green walk hosted by the Municipality. The walk which began at the Cenotaph saw participants walk through several streets of the town and ended at the Bartica beach where the Minister assisted with the distribution of trees.
Minister Gaskin and a team from the Ministry of Business are in the region conducting outreach to the business community.
