St. Maarten – KPSM delegation left to Suriname to participate in the 2015 Korpsweek celebration

On June 24th, 2015, the KPSM delegation left to Suriname to participate in the 2015 Korpsweek celebration. The delegation consisted of 33 members.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the organizing committee of Suriname, who made sure that we got settled in and comfortable for the remainder of the trip. We were also assigned a hostess, Agent Trudy Pengel, who did an outstanding job.
