Morne Sion Residents Elated

     On Friday March 12, 2010 after the ceremony at the Choiseul Secondary School, the Taiwanese ambassador to St.Lucia, H.E.Tom Chou and Hon.Rufus Bousquet shuttled over to Morne Sion, a small community on the western side of the district to fulfill a long overdue promise.
     Months ago, Ms Dugarillard, a florist, asked Bousquet whether it was possible to get her an orchid plant from the Taiwanese personel involved in agriculture on the island.The Rep promised to try to get her one.
On Friday her dream came true as she was presented with this precious gift from the Ambassador himself.
Upon arrival at Ms. Dugarillard's home, and she seeing the plant, tears of joy trickled down her cheeks at the same time murmuring, "My orchid plant, thank you!"
In presenting the plant to her the ambassador told her how  to water the plant. Mr. Bousquet reminded her of keeping his word. Ms. Dugarillard thanked both the Ambassador and the District Rep. for  presenting her this precious gift.
Talking about joy, this was a site to see.
