Suriname funny Wesje man returns to St. Maarten
By Marvin A.Hokstam
PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten–Wesje is coming back. When the funniest man in Suriname performed in St. Maarten last year, he cracked up everybody lucky enough to get one of the coveted seats in the Cultural Center on Back Street. Now he’s returning to bring the house down in October. Twice the comedian, with twice as much in his repertoire, with a show that’s literally twice as much as last year. Wesje: “I have grown over the past year and St. Maarten will experience it.” Twice. The show will run on October 8 and 9.
PHILIPSBURG, St. Maarten Schoolchildren need not worry about mosquitoes plaguing them while in their schoolyards. John Goedschalk of the Suriname based company that produces mosquito repellent patches and wristbands, on Wednesday presented 1,700 patches and 130 wristbands to the Catholic School board. “In China –where I do a lot of business- it is a custom to bring a present with you when you visit someone’s home. I always liked that custom; I figured that since I am bringing my business to St. Maarten, who better to bring this present to than to the children of the island,” said Goedschalk.
