By Alexis R. Milan, Staff Reporter

The Northern Territorial Volunteers (NTV) chapter of the Belize Territorial Volunteers (BTV) drew its largest crowd over any previous excursion on Sunday morning at Garbutts Falls.

According to Wil Maheia, BTV president the excursion to Garbutts Falls along the Benque Viejo del Carmen border was testament to the kind of support and awareness Belizeans have for the issue of border security.

Maheia said each person paid their own passage to and from Garbutts Falls proving how dedicated people are to the issue. The group needed four buses to shuttle all the people to the border and back.

The volunteers painted the border marker at the site before returning from their excursion. Maheia said the group is encouraged by the response and said it is looking forward to future expeditions.
