What will make tomorrow’s program extra grand will be the fact that it is the only festive occasion in New Jersey during the week of Sierra Leone’s 55th Independence Anniversary. It is the only opportunity provided Sierra Leoneans to enjoy the Independence Anniversary because no organization in the State could organize a function.
THE NEW EXECUTIVE
