On February 27, members of the Dominican Republic community, along with local authorities, gathered at Danbury City Hall to celebrate the 170th anniversary of Dominican freedom from Haiti with a flag-raising ceremony.

While highlighting the great contributions Dominicans have continuously made to the local economy, Mayor Mark Boughton also evoked the history of struggle, political instability and repressive governments the second largest country, after Cuba, in the West Indies, has endured to become independent.
