SOCIAL SCENE: Easter bonnet parade
CREATIVITY WAS PUT to the test at the Barbados Christian Women’s Club’s Easter tea and bonnet parade at Accra Beach Hotel last weekend.
The Christian women’s group was celebrating its 21st anniversary, and there was a packed house sharing the occasion, with many women donning gaily-decorated hats in the style of Easter.
The show was stolen, however, by the ten bonnets competing for prizes. Hazel Thomas’ bonnet brought her the first prize, while Jean Smith’s placed was second and Marlene Evelyn’s was third.
Area representative Peggy Tryhane also paraded her recycled and reused upside-down bonnet she called “The Funny Side Up” and read a self-penned poem in which she told “the true Easter story of the risen Lord”
Barbados Christian Women’s Club is an affiliate of Stonecroft Ministries, a non-denominational Christian organisation headquartered in Kansas City. The main aim is to bring the gospel message to those outside the church walls who are not already involved in the church or who are unable to attend the church’s Bible study.
For the patrons supporting the Easter fundraising, it was “a marvelous event”.
