Massachusetts Caribbean Week Law Anniversary
10th Anniversary Celebration

In November, 1991 Senator Bill Owens joined with the Massachusetts Black Legislative Caucus, the Caribbean Ad-Hoc Committee and Ambassadors from Caribbean nations to celebrate the passage of legislation sponsored by the Senate.

The bill, Senate 1108, proclaimed that the governor declare the last week of August be celebrated as Caribbean Week in Massachusetts. Noting that there are more than 300,000 Caribbean nationals residing in the Commonwealth, Senator Owens' legislation cited people of the Caribbean as, "distinguished residents of the state who have made significant contributions to life in Massachusetts."

This year is the 10th Anniversary of the proclamation. A new Ad Hoc Committee, including some of the original committee members, along with Representative Shirley Owens-Hicks, Co-Chairs Donna Baptiste-Hardy and Paul Lewis and the Celebration Committee invite your participation in the celebration events Sunday, August 19 through Wednesday, August 22, 2001.

Our contact persons are Donna Baptiste-Hardy, Co-Chair, 617/740-9682 and Paul Lewis, Co-chair, 617/541-4155.
