A Naturalization Ceremony Ceremony was held on May 29.

In celebration of Transfer Day, the District Court of the Virgin Islands hosted a Naturalization Ceremony on St. Thomas on March 29.  

The ceremony took place on the grounds of the Ron de Lugo Federal Building and Courthouse.  A total of 52 petitioners from 16 different countries accepted the oath of citizenship in the presence of many well-wishers. 

Honorable Curtis V.

He referenced the need to be willing to serve as jurors when they are called.
