Seniors Get Festive

Seniors gather to share holiday spirit.

Senior citizens, relatives and friends got into the holiday spirit earlier this week (19 December) during the West Bay Senior Citizens Christmas Party.

Held at Sir John A. Cumber Primary School Hall, the annual event was an opportunity for family and friends to embrace a feeling of goodwill and enjoy the comfort of being amongst loved ones during the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

Hon. Premier McKeeva Bush OBE, JP and His Excellency The Governor Duncan Taylor, CBE attended. Both spoke, acknowledging the guidance the older generation has provided to the younger and expressing warm wishes for the festive season.

The crowd tapped their feet as the Cayman Islands Folk Singers led a traditional sing-a-long of Caymanian songs and Christmas carols. Each song, prayer and scripture reading reflected this year's theme - Hope.

Towards the end of the night, there were prizes for Eldest Female, Eldest Male, Longest Married Couple, Person Who Can Say the Shortest Memory Verse and Person Who Can Sing the Shortest Chorus learnt in school.
