June 25, 2013 – TO ALL, THANK YOU!!
The San Pedro Lobster Festival takes the opportunity to express our sincere appreciation and heartfelt THANKS to everyone who made the festival a huge success. The event welcomes the opening of the lobster season and brings businesses together to promote our tourism industry.
We would like to thank the Belize Tourism Board and the Honorable Minister Manuel Heredia for their generous support towards the San Pedro Lobster festival 2013. We would also like to thank the San Pedro Town Council for all their logistical support. Very special thanks to Mayor Danny Guerrero and town council foreman, Freddie Gonzalez Jr., who went beyond the call of duty in our time of need!
Thanks also to Bowen & Bowen, NICH, Belize Border Management, Mata Chica Resort & Spa, and Sandy Points Resort for your contributions. Thanks to Atlantic Bank Ltd. for allowing us to use their premises. Special thanks to all the participating businesses in the Lobster Crawl and to those who donated prizes towards the grand raffle. Thanks also to the booth participants who put out amazing food and drinks. Thanks to our judges, Dorian, Mary, Dixie, Roxanne, Joe and Erin and to our tabulators from Rhaburn Consulting.
Thanks to the fire dancer, Lara, and to our volunteers Amanda Syme, Josh Buettner, Renita Dellaca,Peter Lawrence, Rachelle Lisbey and Christine Syme for giving their time. Thanks to Elizabeth Westby for being our official “crawler” and attending every event so we would be up to the minute reports and pictures of all the fun; and to her friends who helped us in our booth. Many thanks to Elito Arceo and his crew for keeping up with the block party clean-up. Our decoration wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Joe Chung, thanks Joe. Lastly, thanks to our organizers, SEAduced by Belize and SPBA.
Your generous assistance provided the support we needed to meet our goal of having a successful festival. There is no way to fully express our gratitude to you all. We couldn’t have done it without you.
