On Sunday June 11, the area representative for Orange Walk East, Honorable Elodio Aragon Jr. Along with members of the Orange Walk East Youth Popular Front, travelled to Santa Martha which is a village situated In the Orange Walk East constituency. Whilst there the area rep. and his crew took up the task of giving the community park a much needed facelift.

The chairlady of Santa Martha Village Mrs. Maria Julia Chi got in touch with Honorable Aragon and members of the O.E.Y.P.F. and decided to engage in a community project which in this case involved the beautification of the park in the village. This park serves the community of more than 1000 residents and had been neglected for some time now. Mrs. Chi got a few residents to clean the area and chop the overgrown grass and then Hon. Aragon and his crew descended upon the park - paint brushes in hand. The project was completed in a little under five hours during which the restoration crew worked beneath the blazing sun in a beautiful Santa Martha day. All material used for the rehabilitation was provided by the area representative, Honorable Elodio Aragon Jr.

The end result was a beautifully painted and restored community park and satisfaction in everyone’s face. The Orange Walk East Youth Popular Front is the very active youth arm of the UDP Orange Walk East Organization. According to their president, Ms. Yashira Chi, their next project is the annual school drive during which they partner with la Immaculada Youth Group and collect school supplies all summer long. At the end of August they gift the items to the primary school students who need it the most.

As to Hon. Aragon he has already identified other community spaces which need rehabilitation and is in the process of acquiring the material to carry out the work. His is an ongoing and never-ending endeavor but he is known to be a tireless and dedicated area representative who continues to deliver on his promises.
