Karen Brodie did an excellent job at choosing a cross section of women who make up part of this island community. Our country has strong, independent, beautiful women who are not only the essence of the Belizean household, but are now also influential and productive elements in our society. This month the San Pedro House of Culture is running a photographic exhibit that features over 60 San Pedro women in celebration of Women's Month.
Featured in this 'Picture of the Week' is one of Karen Brodie's portaits that stood out for us at Ambergris Today. Meet Ms. Helen Haylock - She spent her childhood days playing on the beach area of Holiday Hotel where her dad had his shipyard. As a teenager she danced the hallways of San Pedro. Helen struggled to raise a large family as a single mother and today this dynamic woman enjoys a peaceful happy life overseeing the harmony of her children that comprises of Nolan Haylock, Claudia Haylock, Janine Haylock, Marcia Haylock, Tyrel Hsylock, Denton Haylock, Martha Haylock, Anna Haylock, and Adriana Haylock.
HAPPY WOMEN'S MONTH - We invite you, along with the San Pedro House of Culture, to visit the exhibit and join in the celebration of our community's strong women.
