Lauru people and their families living in and around Honiara for the first time marked their province’s Second Appointed day in Honiara.
Last night, in a boisterous occasion, the people of Choiseul in Honiara marked and acknowledged their day of independence by reflecting on their many achievements since breaking away from the Western province in 1992.
While the main celebration was held in Choiseul, the incumbent Lauru Peoples Association (LPA) initiated the idea to have the important day marked in Honiara to allow fellow Choiseul citizens in the nation’s capital join in the celebrations.
The programme included a flag-raising segment, speeches and a fellowship feast.
Important people from government as well as senior Lauru leaders in and around Honiara graced the event last night, which was held at the Rove RSIPF Police Club.
