The St. Lucy District Hospital recently celebrated Senior Citizen Week with a Gospel Concert sponsored by Arawak Cement Company Ltd., where patients from the St. Phillip, Gordon Cummins, Psychiatric and Geriatric Hospitals as well as the Elayne Scantlebury Centre were invited to participate.
The concert, which saw performances from a number of groups and choirs including the BWU Retired Workers Choir, Crab Hill Evangelistic Choir, the Transport Board Chorale and the St. Lucy Hospital Choir, formed part of the activities to celebrate Senior Citizens Week.
There was also a poem by Aileen Burges, a musical rendition by the Lewis Family, sign language by Ruby Carter, a solo by Christine Carter and a mime presentation by Ria-Ashlee Reifer, among many other performances.
Rupert Greene, Arawak Cement’s General Manager, told the patients and staff that the company had been working with the hospital for over 13 years and was happy with the association.
“We believe that our senior citizens have contributed considerably to making Barbados what it is today and this is just one of our ways of saying thank you for all that you have done as well as to give you a day of good wholesome entertainment.”
