The Best of St. Croix
The Governor In Frederiksted 2008
Governor John P. deJongh held a Luncheon on the West End of St. Croix,
speaking at the Fort Frederick Museum to a packed house of West Enders
who wanted to hear about the new plans for the revitalization of the town. In
evidence were many who voiced concerns and the Governor listened and
took note of them all. A full slate of Cruiseship calls for the new year and the
establishment of Diagio's Captain Morgan Rum, here on the West End,
were the highlights of the event.
