St. Maarten – The Youth Link Foundation (YLF) has embraced the idea of renaming the Dutch Quarter Community Center in honor of Edgar Lynch. The proposal, launched at a memorial on Sunday has also received support from National Alliance leader William Marlin and 1st Vice President of Parliament Leroy de Weever.

“We surely believe in honoring him, as he has undoubtedly served our island well,” YLF President Stuart Johnson remarked in a statement issued Tuesday.
He added, “We are saddened by the news of the passing of our former State Secretary, former commissioner and Island Council member. We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Mrs. Nilda Lynch-Arduin, his family and his friends.”

Johnson also reiterated the foundation’s stance to also name, the future educational institution projected to be built in Belvedere or any new educational institution after the late Vance James Jr.

“It is time we learn, as a Country to honor and respect those individuals who have made priceless contributions towards the development of our island and its people,” Johnson concluded.
