Dear Fellow Guyanese and Friends of Guyana:

Guyana’s 50th Independence Anniversary Celebration Committee (New York) takes great pleasure in inviting you to participate in the following events to celebrate our nation’s Golden Jubilee of Independence in New York City, fromSaturday, June 4 – Sunday June 12, 2016.

Such historic milestones are once in a life time celebrations. Our committee recognizes this important fact. This is why we are utilizing all resources at our disposal to inform, inspire and mobilize the Guyanese community to join in this jubilation. The excitement in our community is palpable. Guyanese in the diaspora are experiencing a rapture of national pride.

Our work as a Committee will not end until the message of our celebration reaches every member of the diaspora. I’m therefore enlisting you in our diaspora engagement campaign. We invite you to spread the word about “Guyana Jubilee Celebration NYC” from June 4 – 12, 2016. I urge you to pass on this information to every Guyanese you know via your email distribution lists, social media as well as at your churches, workplace and other social settings. Tell your family, friends, and colleagues about Guyana Jubilee Celebration NYC – June 4 – 12, 2016.

President David Granger, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo, several ministers of the government of Guyana, Guyanese American Actress, CCH Pounder,  former leader of the British House of Lords, Guyana-born Baroness Valerie Amos and several other Guyanese celebrities; including award winning recording artists, athletes and sports personalities, will travel to New York celebrate with us.

This is a time to demonstrate our national pride. This is a time to celebrate our rich heritage and uniqueness as a people. This is a time for Guyanese everywhere to unite and record this illustrious moment in history in harmony as one people. Now is time to put Guyana first. Now is the time to foster national cohesion, fortify our Guyanese identity and enhance our influence in the United States. Our nation is at “50”. Lets us “reflect our Journey – forge unity and boldly embrace modernity.” This we must do for posterity.

We are now on the homestretch and will touchdown with the greatest celebration Guyanese will ever see in North America.
