Ernestina-Morrissey and Cape Verdean Recognition Week
Ernestina-Morrissey was well represented during Cape Verdean Recognition Week Festivities.
On June 30 the New Bedford Whaling Museum hosted a special event as SEMA President Julius Britto described his experiences being present at the formal transition to independence for Cape Verde 40 years ago. Schooner Ernestina Commissioner and Whaling Museum trustee Eugene Monteiro introduced Julius.
Julius described his first introduction to Schooner Ernestina during that visit. We hope New Bedford Cable Access will have the recording available soon.
On Sunday Commissioner once again lead the Ernestina-Morrissey contingent in the Cape Verdean Recognition Parade with SEMA director Derek Stevens.
