St. Maarten – Seven cob scouts of the Mohican Scouts travel for a ten-day trip to Suriname today, where they will join 1,500 other scouts. The young scouts will also have a meeting with the country’s controversial President Desi Bouterse. Yesterday, the scouts and their leaders Angela Richards, Marva Verwayne and Soraida Ersilia were at the Government Administration building where Prime Minister Sarah Wescot-Williams received them in the A.C. Wathey Legislative Hall.

“You are embarking on a trip to Suriname as part of the scouts’ annual visit to other countries,” the PM said. “You will also meet with President Desi Bouterse. Be proud of yourself, your country, your colors and your flag. I am looking forward to hear your stories about your visit to Suriname.”

The Prime Minister presented scout-leader Angela Richards with a tile depicting a Ruby Bute painting to take as a present to the president of Suriname.

Richards said that the ten-day trip will be a life-changing experience for the seven cub scouts.
