Peals of laughter rang across the grounds of the Princess Margaret Secondary School on Sunday afternoon and into the early evening as children ran around care-free.
It was the annual seniors’ luncheon and children’s Christmas party hosted by St. Philip South MP, Attorney General and Minister of Home Affairs, Adriel Brathwaite, at the school in Six Roads.
Chairman of the branch, Carl Mapp told Barbados TODAY they catered for about 700 people and the extensive menu included ham, turkey, chicken, lamb, fish as well as hot dogs and ice cream for the children.
The event, which started at 12:45 p.m. and ended around 5:30 p.m., was enjoyed by all, he added.
“To be honest, this is the third I’ve done and this was the biggest to date,” he said.
For the children there was a clown, face painting, and a jumping tent while entertainment for the seniors was provided by home grown talent including Shakida Stoute, who sang Christmas songs.
Brathwaite, who read a card presented to him by six year-old boy who attended the event, wished his guests good health and all the best for the season and the new year. He also renewed his commitment to serve them, noting that although he was unable to fulfill everyone’s expectations, he would continue to work with them.
The St. Philip South MP said he was looking forward to working with them in the new year and to having them at the same event next December. (DS)
