Public Service Day Upcoming Celebrations
Activities to observe Public Service Day 2012 continue with the hosting of Outdoor Games, which include a Basketball Tournament carded for Saturday 25th August, 2012 at the Lindo Park Sports Complex and a Sports Festival and Family Fun Day at the Windsor Park Sports Stadium planned for Sunday 26th August, 2012.
These events will take the form of a competition among the various Government Departments/Ministries in Rounders, Cricket, Basketball and Football.
The main objective of the activities is to advocate collaboration, togetherness, greater interaction and socialization among Public Officers.
Sports Officer Mr. Yeudi John says the games have been organised in such a way, for it to be both fun and competitive.
In an effort to generate interest and excitement for the Sports Festival and Family Fun Day, an aerobic display will be done by the Public Service Exercise Group.
The general viewing public will also be invited to participate in the aerobic display.
When asked where this idea was originated from, Mr. John mentioned that the Public Service Committee wanted to do something different.
He says the competition will start with cricket, followed by rounders and then football in terms of festivals.
Public Officers are urged to attend in large numbers to support the competing teams at the outdoor games. An enjoyable atmosphere will be created with the presence of live music entertainment and the sale of eats and drinks.
