Mrs Rita ‘Ma Polen’ Mingo is Dominica’s newest centenarian
Residents of the Castle Bruce have planned a few activities to commemorate Mrs. Rita ‘Ma Polen’ Mingo’s one hundredth birthday. The core activity was the church service at the ‘Our Lady of Health Roman Catholic Church’ in Castle Bruce where most if not all the residents of Castle Bruce turned out to celebrate this momentous occasion. Among the officials present at the church service were Honourable Johnson Drigo, Parliamentary Representative of the Castle Bruce constituency, the President of Dominica, His Excellency Dr Nicohlas J. O. Liverpool and Mrs. Liverpool just to name a few. Rita Mingo was born at Good Hope on November 16th 1910 and is the mother of nine children, seventy grand children, one hundred and thirty-seven great grand and thirty-six great-great-grand children.
