The St. Mark’s Development Committee was setup in 1987 with the aim of developing the community from the ground level up. Some of the original and founding members of the committee includes Mr Anthony ‘Argar’ Alexander, Mr Samuel Britton, Mr Franklyn Marshall and Mr Denneth Modeste.

The committee now goes by the name of St. Mark’s Organisation for Development, under the capable leadership of Mr. Raymond Baptiste and Dr. Julie Dubois.


Activities

Residents proclaim St. Mark’s Celebrations the best time of the year, less Christmas, as people from all over the island of Grenada, and even visitors to the island would make their way to St. Mark’s for the celebrations.

The Sunset City Festival is normally a very festive time for the people of St. Mark’s, with many activities taking place. The activities which includes sporting activities, such as knockout cricket and football competition, health walks, health fairs, food festival, hiking… span well over a month, leading up to a final week of activities, known as the St. Mark’s Week of Activities.
