Know Your Country

On November 10, 2011.

Tonight the Philipsburg Jubilee Library is hosting the last chapter in the “Power of Knowledge” Series titled: “Know Your Country!” There will be music, a short lecture about the history of St. Maarten and a display of food from the various cultures represented on the island. Also a photography exhibit of the history of St. Maarten is displayed in the central hall of the library.

This evening the Library also would like to thank all the previous speakers of the “The Power of Knowledge” Series. The five part series focused on the various issues we think people in the community of Sint Maarten are interested in. Issues such as, their rights as a worker (labor issues), their responsibility as parents, their health, their community, and their country. Knowledgeable persons in these various areas of interest came out and spoke about the topic of the evening. Provisions were made for the audience to ask questions. Please be sure to continue to look out for the dates of next year’s Power of Knowledge Series in the newspaper. The sessions were all free of charge, and will continue to be so; the only requirement is to bring yourself and a friend and be informed and inspired.
