With the rainy clouds dispersed, it was a beautiful Sunday afternoon that was the backdrop for a very worthwhile charitable event.
Classic Protection and Security Company hosted its first charity event for Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) and Campbell Town Association at Stella Maris Pastoral Centre in St Andrew.
As guests sauntered in, within minutes they were tapping their feet or bobbing their head as Floyd Foulks and his guitar was very entertaining with pretty good renditions of songs that range from Lionel Ritchie's Hello to Bob Marley's Buffolo Solder and the folk, A Little More Oil In My Lamp.
It was a not an evening for long speeches, but executive director of YOU, Georgia Lewis Scott, made a passionate plea to those present to continue supporting the organisation or similar entities to help in nation building. While she noted that the 21-year-old organisation has achieved much, there was still much more to be done as the organisation incorporates the 'no one left behind' policy. While commending their mentors some whom have been with the organisation since its inception, she noted that much more volunteers were need to help the country achieve the government's 2030 vision as everyone has a part to play in stopping the country from continuing along its current trend.
President of Campbell Town Association Garth Kitson's encouraging words were few and simple: "The little we do adds up."
So as guests pondered making a difference, they enjoyed good company, some relaxing music and a wider variety of hors d'oeuvres, including a very succulent lamb sausage from VIP meats.
