The Commemorative Broken Trident will make a stop at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade today, as it makes its way around Barbados as part of the 50th anniversary of Independence.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Senator Maxine McClean will receive the trident from officials of the Barbados Defence Force (BDF) at her Culloden Road office, according to a release from the Barbados Government Information Service (BGIS).

McClean is also the Chairman of the 50th Anniversary of Independence Coordinating Committee, which is responsible for organizing the activities surrounding the Trident.

The BGIS release stated that a pledge book would accompany the Trident and that that Barbadians, members of the diplomatic community and other visitors to the ministry were expected to make pledges and sign during the book course of the day.

The Broken Trident will remain at the ministry from 9:30 a.m. to  3:30 p.m.
