Thibaud, Florida and New York Committees Valentine's Fundraisers tripple Sucesses. 
 
Saturday February 16th, brought out the romantic side of all who attended Thibaud reunion Valentine's dinners in South Florida, New York and Thibaud.
 
The Thibaud event which was held in the primary school, was sold out despite the price tag of $50 per ticket.  All in attendance raved about the service, food, drinks an of course the entertainment. They all danced the night away into the wee hours of the morning.
 
In New York, the atmosphere was very Manhattan chic, with spalshes of red everywhere. Pearl Canoville Douglas opened up her home and her heart to all who came to support the New York Committee's education fundraising efforts. The group dined on hors d' ouvres and dinner and toasted the night with top shelf as well as sexy drinks. The Dominican DJ mixed a combination of Dominican and popular music and the guests were treated to a multi media presentation of photos of the children and school in Thibaud.
 
There was also a great turnout at the home of Roslyn Lockhart in Hollywood, Florida, where a large group showed their support and enjoyed the wonderful romantic evening. The tone was set and everyone came to "just have a great time". There were lots of food, drinks and the never dissapointing musical entertainment.
 
Hundres of dollars were raised in all locations and the monies will go towards the goal of improving our community.
 
The Thibaud Reunion Committees would like to thank all who supported the cause, those who could not attend but sent in a donation, Thank you all.

Upgrades in Thibaud are on the way
 
Jolly LeBlanc, a Thibaudite living in Roseau, and the main engineer on one of the government projects in Thibaud, has reported that the main water supply project has completed and the road resurfacing project is well on the way. New water supply pipes were added and they have been tested to be more reliable and safe than the pre-existing metal pipes. According to Mr. LeBlanc  the pipes will last a lifetime and it will make the water supply more powerful as well as safer with no lead.
 
Another team is now concentrating on resurfacing all the roads in Thibaud, widening them as well as implementing proper drainage. This project should be completed by the end of the month.
 
This will help beautify the village, and help in our rebuilding Thibaud efforts. This project was slated for Thibaud long before reunion plans were made public, However we are pleased with it coinciding with our Reunion agenda. Follow this link for more photos.
