Formerly celebrated as Baron Bliss Day on March 9, every year in commemoration of the great benefactor Henry Edward Ernest Victor Bliss, the holiday was changed to include our National Heroes George Cadle Price and Philip Stanley Wilberforce Goldson.

On hand for this year’s wreath laying ceremony were, Belize’s Governor General Sir Colville Young, Cabinet Secretary Mr. Carlos Perdomo, Minister Elodio Aragon Jr., NICH President Dianne Haylock, and other dignitaries of the diplomatic corp. It was a beautiful and solemn ceremony which lasted a little under one hour. Sir Colville Young and Mr. Carlos Perdomo each laid a wreath on the Baron’s Grave while Minister Aragon and Ms. Dianne Haylock place a wreath in front of Mr. Goldson and Mr. Price’s portraits respectively.
