The Paynesville City Corporation (PCC) recently opened its doors to hundreds of kids to celebrate Liberia’s Independence Day.
The kids ranging from ages 1-12 years enjoyed activities such as dance and eating competitions as part of the PCC’s July 26 Independence Day celebrations. Gifts of toys and plenty of assorted snack foods were given to all the kids, especially those kids that won from the games that kept them busy throughout the day.
Annually the PCC hosts the children’s party to let the residents know that the City Hall is opened for all its residents.
The Mayor of Paynesville, Cyvette M. Gibson, who was in attendance took pictures and interacted with the kids. Honorable Gibson said during the program that the doors of the City Hall were opened to the little ones because they believe that being a child is a great experience, especially when one gets to play and to be a kid.
Liberia’s 168th Independence Day Celebration was celebrated throughout the country with the government’s activities being held in Greenville, Sinoe County and Barclayville, Grand Kru County so that citizens in that part of the country can know that they too are part of the developments that are ongoing.
This year’s orator, Ambassador Charles Minor used the occasion to call on the government and future governments to create what he termed ‘pivotal opportunities’ for young Liberians in the country’s economic activities.
