Again, thank you all and see you again (God willing) next year.
The President would like to thank all who attended the Annual Fun
Day, where fun was had by all.  

We were granted with good weather, seeing old friends, making new
ones, watching how much the kids from last year have blossomed,
some almost taller and bigger than their parents and most of all
partaking of the different Guyanese dishes prepared by both male and
female chefs.  
We had the games where the youths (both young and used-to-be
young) showcased the athletic skills.

Carmichael who died this morning (August 19th) in Guyana.
