Laying of Wreaths Ceremony
Government officials, family members and friends, paid tribute to past Labour Stalwarts when they lay wreaths at their gravesites, one of the celebrations to mark Labour Day this year.
The event is an annual tradition where past Labour icons are honoured for their contribution to the Labour Movement and the workers of St.Kitts-Nevis.
Among them was the nation’s first National Hero, The Right Excellent Sir Robert L. Bradshaw.
Speaking briefly at the gravesite, Prime Minister The Right Hon Dr Denzil Douglas said in the context of the challenges workers are facing from the global economic crisis, they should draw inspiration from the lives of the past Labour leaders.
The procession continued to lay wreaths on the resting places of the late Clarence Fitzroy Bryant, Sir Lee Moore, E. St. John Payne, Fidel O’Flaherty, Sir Joseph N France, and Sir Caleb Azariah Paul Southwell.
