BASSETERRE, St Kitts – The Anguilla Nevis St Kitts Association Reunion, the largest gathering of nationals from those islands, scheduled for July 10-12, 2020 has been postponed to July 9-11, 2021 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
ANSAR 2018 was held in St Kitts & Nevis and organizers had expected more than 600 delegates from the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, the United States Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, St Kitts and Nevis; and St Martin/St Maarten would have attended the 19th Biennial Anguilla Nevis St Kitts Association Reunion in Anguilla.
The Anguilla Nevis St Kitts Association Reunion is the largest gathering of nationals from those islands, who meet in a different location every two years to rekindle old alliances, strengthen bonds of friendships of sisterhood and brotherhood, participate in various educational, economic and social activities of mutual interest, as well as network to remain connected to their common heritage, history, and cultural legacy.
Carlson Connor, president of the New York Chapter of APANY said Anguilla is still looking forward with pride and honor for the first time to host the 19th Biennial Anguilla Nevis St Kitts Association Reunion (ANSAR 2021) under the theme “United by a collective effort for a common goal.”
