Invites New Members to Join Its Cultural Group

In 2007, the Vieille Co-operative Case Credit Union Ltd (VCCU) recognized there was a decline in cultural activities in most of the villages within its boundaries. The credit union then took the decision to get involved in preserving and promoting Dominica’s cultural traditions.  A committee was set up with the objective of stimulating interest in traditional dances and the playing of traditional instruments. 
This gave birth to the VCCU in Culture group led by Mrs. Vernice Bellony and Ms. Olivette Joseph. The group has participated in Reunion 2008 and National Cultural festivities and also performed at the airport, Portsmouth Market and village activities. The group is now seeking to attract new members, and interested persons are invited to attend a meeting in their community. The meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday February 1, 2 and 3 in Penville, Thibaud and Vieille Case respectively at 5 pm at the branch and sub-branch offices.     The Vieille Case Branch of the NCCU views its role in promoting and preserving the cultural heritage of its members as part of its social responsibility.
