Alfonso and Violeta Iglesias of Corozal Town lived several years in San Pedro, and so did Yansie as a child, so they are all considered Sanpedranos. So this weekend, January 14, 2012, a lot of folks from San Pedro headed over to Corozal Town to celebrate Yansie’s sweet 15th Birthday.
Dressed in a lovely wide orange dress, Yansie celebrated a mass of thanksgiving at St. Francis Xavier Church and then went on to Dreams Dance Hall for a wonderful reception prepared for her by her parents and madrinas. Several young Sanpedrano gentlemen chaperoned Yansie and took part in a wonderful show of music, lights and dance. Her main chaperone was Josue.
Even San Pedro’s popular emcee, Angel Nuñez, was flown over to enliven and emcee such a significant event for the Iglesias family. After the show and the formal toasts by her Father and Brother Orlando, an energized, lively and very ecstatic crowd of Corozalenos and Sanpedranos took over the dancehall for an event that will surely last a lifetime in the memories of Yansie Iglesias and the Iglesias family. Ambergris Today congratulates Yansie and wishes her all the best in her future endeavors and may all her dreams come true. Happy Quinceaños.
