Mrs. Wasinee Piewpong, the President of Ayuthaya Red Cross Chapter, made known that the entire year is the highly auspicious year as the Queen will turn 80 years of age on August 12. Her Majesty has graciously set August 1 as the annual Thai Women’s Day.
Thus, the entire month of August is a very auspicious time where all Thai citizens join together for activities in Her Majesty’s honor. The women of Ayutthaya province have collectively agreed to set up activities that foster Thai culture throughout August. Women all over the province, including government officers, vendors, and other citizens, will wear the Thai sarongs in honor of the Queen.
Mrs. Wasinee revealed earlier that there had been ongoing campaigns for people to don Thai cloth, but they had not spread throughout the province.
