Entertainment included steel pan performances, solo renditions and tributes made to Mrs. Liburd by family friends, her grandchildren and great-grand child.
A number of speeches were made by Minister with responsibility for Social Transformation in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) Hon. Hensley Daniel, Area Representative Hon. Robelto Hector and Ms. Christine Springette who spoke on behalf of Premier of Nevis Hon. Joseph Parry.
Mr. Daniel’s congratulatory remarks to Mrs. Liburd highlighted the fulfillment of her maternal obligations to her children and other people’s children. He also reflected on the NRP-led NIA policy for its older adults.
“Mrs. Liburd, I came to say congratulations. Since we [the NIA] came to office in 2006, I have been going around the island and celebrating the birthdays of senior citizens. You have raised your children and other people’s children. You have fulfilled your calling and you have given a strict account of your life on earth. We want to thank you for helping to guide these children,” Mr. Daniel articulated.
