Hutton and McKay hosted a New Year BBQ at Hutton's Norbrook home on Saturday January 3.

Managing director of Centralized Strategic Services, Heston Hutton, joined with his friend, American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) vice-president and ADS Global CEO Ron McKay, in hosting a New Year BBQ social at the poolside of Hutton's Norbrook, St Andrew home on the evening of Saturday, January 3.

Under their Big Green Egg Production banner, the evening brought together an intimate gathering of corporate leaders, politicos, diplomats, children and friends, all enjoying great food, endless drinks and lively music. It also served as an occasion for persons to know a little more about, a benefits, lifestyle and savings platform that is tailor-made for AMCHAM throughout the Caribbean and Latin America. The programme offers members a network of services and products, with significant savings developed for business people throughout the region.

That aside, as the children enjoyed movies in the cosy in-house cinema, jovial guests huddled alongside the pool and waterfall discussing plans for 2015 and their hopes and aspirations, all while building new friendships. As the evening progressed, some guests loosened their feet as the famed Fitzroy Minott and The Breddas band delivered good live music. It appears as if the reception will, in fact, become a regular calendar affair.
