The Vincentian Association of Pennsylvania has donated EC$2,000.00 to the Argyle International Airport, this, as Vincentians at home and abroad continue to make tangible contributions to the construction of the Argyle International Airport.
The donation is part of proceeds raised during a concert held late last year to raise monies for the airport. The donation was made on Tuesday February 18th at the office of the Vincentian Newspaper by Cindy Cordice-Barker, who did so on behalf of the Association.
Below is a story about the event which was first published in the Vincentian Newspaper in late 2013.
The Argyle International Airport continues to benefit from the generosity of Vincentians at home and in the diaspora, as they continue to show in tangible forms their support for the construction of the airport.
On Tuesday October 16, 2013, Friends of the Argyle International Airport USA represented by its President Godfrey Pitt, handed over a cheque for US$15,000.00 to patron of the AIA Contributory Fund His Excellency Governor General Sir Frederick Ballantyne, at Government House. It was a double handing over ceremony as Interactive Media company which runs the Searchlight Newspaper, handed over a cheque for EC$5,000.00 as well. The cheque from Interactive Media was handed over by Chairman Corlita Ollivierre.
