The Choiseul Chapter of the Volunteer St Lucia Program is alive and well and is destined to go places. So says Mrs Actille, a senior member in the group.
According to Mrs Actille, the group was formed way back in 2007 during the time of the Cricket World Cup when volunteers were being sought to be trained to help out in that event. After the event Mrs Actille reiterates that the trained members were being called quite regularly to perform National duties.
“We had our first executive in 2013,” she recalls. “Persons like Feria Theophilus, Eve Aimable, I, and others were very influential in keeping the group together,” she continued.
The Choiseul Chapter of the National Volunteer program operates under the Motto “We embody civic responsibility and patriotism through voluntary service, with beautiful smiles”.

Though the membership has been very active over the years, it was only last year, June to be exact that the National Volunteer Program, Volunteer Saint Lucia, launched the Choiseul Chapter of the program. Hmmm!
The group has been involved in numerous projects throughout the length and breadth of the district, namely, refurbishing the Choiseul Village library - kids corner, painting homes etc. (Lost contact with Mrs Actille or she refused to answer her phone.)
