While Barbados’ 43rd anniversary of independence may be months away, some parishes have already begun preparations for this year’s celebrations, with several activities scheduled for June.
One such parish is St. Philip, whose independence committee is seeking residents to participate in its annual talent show. Persons are invited to represent their parish in dance, poetry, drama, singing or even a unique form of entertainment.??

The St. Michael Parish Independence Committee will also launch its parish project, "St. Michael GREEN TEAM" on Saturday, June 20, 2009 at Independence Square, starting at 4:30 p.m.
