SOCIAL SCENE: YWCA members mix and mingle
LONG-STANDING and more recent members of the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) were at the Hilton mixing and mingling last week in what president Tamita Griffith said was an exercise designed to give exposure to the organisation and its work.
The congenial atmosphere of an idyllic outdoor setting saw ‘Y’ members such as a former president Daisy Edwards-Carter socialising and reminiscing with more recent members like Janice Griffith and other young “Y” women such as Shakira Johnson and Tonya Graham. There were also benefactors of the organisation, Minister of Social Care Steve Blackett and Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler, and representative for the constituency where the YWCA is based.
Hillaby Turner’s Hall Primary School’s choir and steel pan performed early in the evening, setting the stage for performances by the big names in entertainment – Kirk Brown, Mikey, Imani, Red Plastic Bag, Alison Hinds – artistes who have partnered with the ‘Y’ over the years to support the organisation’s work.
It was an evening when the women who voluntarily give of their time to social causes let their hair down and enjoyed the lighter side of life.
