Citizens and Friends of Trinidad and Tobago,

 

This is a very special time in our Nation’s history as we celebrate our Diamond Jubilee of Independence. As a country, we have punched well above our weight and made our mark in many spheres of life. This calendar of activities seeks to pay homage to several of those spheres of influence around the world, including art, cuisine, music, Carnival, sport and film. This event listing is a work in progress and revised editions will be released in the coming weeks. Event-specific flyers and information will also be circulated. We encourage you to share this email widely and also to follow us at https://www.facebook.com/ttconsulatetoronto for updates, live coverage and recaps of the events.

 

Our team at the Consulate of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago in Toronto wishes all Trinbagonians, and those who love our country and support us, a happy 60th Independence Anniversary. May we all continue to fly our flag high and promote that which is the best of Trinidad and Tobago!

CHRISTMAS GREETINGS 2021

 

Once again, as we approach the Christmas Season, on behalf of myself and the executive of the Trinidad and Tobago Society of Winnipeg Inc. I wish to extend to all of our members our best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year.

Over the past twenty months, we all have been held hostage to the Covid 19 virus, which has precipitated changes in the running of organizations as a whole.

We the executive are committed to ensuring that the Trinidad & Tobago Society remains functional and vibrant by exploring ways in which we can interact with our members in a meaningful way, during this time of restrictions.

At present we are in the process of reactivating the phoning committee to ensure that everyone will be kept updated on any plans/activities of the organization. We trust you will be receiving a phone call from a member of this committee sometime in the new year.

The executive is now in the process of moving the monthly executive meetings to virtual, effective February 2022. Our members can now renew their membership online by going to our website www.tntwpg.com. Also, we hope to be participating in Folklorama 2022 providing the pandemic has abated and the restrictions are lifted.

During the past months we have lost some of our members, the latest of whom are Winston Jody, Karl Rambarran, Anirude Maharaj, and Esme Stewart.  Unfortunately, due to the nature of the virus, we are unable to get together to pay our respects to these individuals; however, we extend our condolences to the family members and loved ones.

Once again, I wish you all a very merry Christmas season, and God’s blessings for the coming year.

We are working on holding our Annual Family Christmas Party / Gathering this year. The Tentative date for our members to reserve and promote is Saturday Dec 11 2021. We are hopeful with the progress of the COVID issues becoming better for everyone here in Manitoba in the next few months. We will be able to proceed with this event with a close to normal functionality as like past Christmas Events. Finalized details will be emailed & posted in mid November 2021. 

 

We are also working on a few new Online Initiatives for The Trinidad and Tobago Society of Winnipeg.

Which will be helpful in maintaining our organization's presents in Winnipeg when completed.

IN CELEBRATION OF THE 59th YEAR OF IDEPENDENCE OF TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO

 

On behalf of the executive of the Trinidad and Tobago Society of Winnipeg Inc., I take this opportunity to wish our members and fellow Trinidadians and Tobagonians a safe and happy Independence Day, as today marks our 59th anniversary. My wish is that as the flag of our nation is raised each year at the City Hall in Winnipeg; that it will continue to instill pride in our hearts as nationals.

It is indeed a fact, that although we reside in Manitoba, we continue to have that sense of belonging and are always mindful of everything we as fellow countrymen/women can do for our homeland, to make it a place of wealth, peace, and prosperity.

As you will recall, the last two Independence Day celebrations were cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic, which continues to have a devastating effect throughout the world.

Here in the province of Manitoba, we are beginning to see the lifting of some restrictions, thanks to our leaders and the people of Manitoba who rolled up their sleeves and took the vaccination. To those of you who are still reluctant to do so, I encourage you to take the vaccination, wear your mask and please stay safe.

Once again let us continue to show our fellow Manitobans that we are a great people from a great nation, as we work towards the prosperity and betterment of our beloved Islands of Trinidad and Tobago.

Have a wonderful Independence Day.

 

Joe Glasgow

 

President
