Kimberley Richardson of the Aruba Tourism Authority had the great pleasure to honor Aruba’s loyal and friendly visitors as Goodwill Ambassadors and Emerald Ambassadors of Aruba. The Goodwill Ambassador certificate is presented on behalf of the Minister of Tourism, as a token of appreciation to the guests who visit Aruba 20 years and more consecutively. The Emerald Ambassador certificate is presented to guests who visit Aruba 35 years and more consecutively.
The Emerald Ambassadors honorees were Mrs. Heidi Vernic and Mr. James Barry, who have been coming to Aruba for over 35 years. Also honored was Mrs. Georgiana Stankiewicz, who received her Goodwill Ambassador certificate.
The Emerald Ambassador is the highest certificate that we present, and is given to visitors who have been visiting Aruba 35 years or more consecutively. The ceremony was one of importance to us because we get to honor Aruba’s loyal visitors whom have become like family to us.
This lovely group of people stated that they love the island very much, especially for its year-round sunny weather, nice sandy beaches and picturesque sunsets, delicious variety of foods, its cleanliness, and Aruba’s warm and friendly people whom became like family to them.
Richardson together with the representatives of the Renaissance Ocean Suites presented the certificates to the honorees, handed over some presents and also thanked them for choosing Aruba as their favorite vacation destination and as their home-away-from-home.
