Statement from His Excellency, Governor John S. Duncan, OBE

Tuesday, 17 March 2015 - 7:00pm

Virgin Islanders, ladies and gentlemen, as your Governor I wanted to speak to you today about an important issue.

But before doing so, I also wanted to mention that as many of you will know; last week I had an audience with Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Her Majesty was pleased to receive the gift of salt from Salt Island prepared by Calvin “Jandy” Smith and Lethelma Thomas. Her Majesty takes a keen interest in all her Overseas Territories and it was an opportunity to recall the Islanders’ willingness to help others that so impressed Queen Victoria, a tradition that continues today through the many Virgin Islands groups such as the Rotary Clubs, Lions, Family Support Network, Visar and many others.

Message from Her Majesty The Queen on Commonwealth Day 2015
