U.S. Embassy and AMCHAM Guyana Host Guyanese Senior Citizens for Thanksgiving

Ambassador Lynch congratulates a centenarian.

Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch recently hosted over 100 Guyanese senior citizens at her residence for a Thanksgiving luncheon, sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce of Guyana (AMCHAM Guyana).

Ambassador Lynch congratulated AMCHAM Guyana on its initiative to spread Thanksgiving cheer to the community and underscored the role of AMCHAM Guyana and the wider business community in engaging in social service initiatives for senior citizens as part of their corporate social responsibility. President of AMCHAM Guyana, Zulfikar Ally noted that the organization was pleased to give back to Guyana’s senior citizens who have contributed immensely to its development.

“It is a joy to share the tradition with Guyana, whose people treat U.S. diplomats not as foreigners, but with open arms and a warm welcome. The first Thanksgiving celebrated the bounty of the fall harvest just as we celebrate the bounty of our friendships with the people of Guyana”, said the Ambassador.
