The Postal Service continued to showcase its talented employees with a free lunchtime concert yesterday.
The event was part of celebrations this month for the service’s 162 years of operation, said committee member and coordinator of the concert, Jacintha Browne, who is an assistant postal superintendent.
The concert took place in the Jackie Opel Amphitheatre of the General Post Office in Cheapside, The City, and was open to the public. It was catered by staff of the General Post Office, headed by financial controller Trudy Farley.
The event drew a moderate crowd which sat and enjoyed the offerings. The main act was steel pan by invited guests Samuel “Noel” Harry and Cicely Gay, but there was also poetry by staff members Michael Oxley and Frank Gilkes, and songs by Kay Hunte and Cheryl Worrell.
Assistant Postmaster General Iris Lashley said the concert was a way to show how postal workers were a part of the community.
“This highlights the fact that we are all family, internally and externally, and how postal workers are integrated into the community. It is also to let the public know all the service has to offer,” she said.
The next event is a free variety concert on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the amphitheatre. (CA)
