For his 84th birthday last Saturday, former tourism minister, Ambassador Frank Pringle, was honoured with the naming of a sitting porch in the Golf Pavilion of the exclusive Tryall Club in Hanover in his honour.

Ambassador Pringle, who was educated in both Jamaica and England, is a founder and director of the Club. He was also involved in the development of the home of the rich and famous - the fabulous Round Hill Hotel and Villas.

Having had a rich association with tourism in its various forms for the greater part of his adult life, Ambassador Pringle served as a director on the board of Air Jamaica for eight years and became a cabinet member and minister of tourism during 1989 to 1992, while serving as senator from 1989 to 1998.

Outlook brings you highlights of the luncheon staged by the board of directors of the club.

In attendance were members of his family, former Prime Minister P.J. Patterson, custos of Hanover, David Stair; mayor of Montego Bay, Glendon Harris; and Senator Noel Sloley, among several others.
