Jamaica Gleaner - - PUBLIC AUCTION SALE -

FIF­TEEN CI­TI­ZENS were hon­oured by the St Cather­ine Parish Coun­cil in Eman­ci­pa­tion Square, Span­ish Town, on Mon­day for their out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tion to the de­vel­op­ment of the parish in dif­fer­ent ar­eas.

Chair­man of the parish coun­cil and Mayor of Span­ish Town Nor­man Scott, in his ad­dress to the large gath­er­ing, praised the con­tri­bu­tion of the awardees, de­scrib­ing them as lo­cal stars who con­tinue to labour in their re­spec­tive com­mu­ni­ties to en­rich the lives of their fel­low­men.

“As the old Ja­maican adage says, ‘En­cour­age­ment sweet­ness labour’, there­fore, we use this op­por­tu­nity to show you that we ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­forts through­out the years and pray that God will grant you per­pet­ual strength as you con­tinue to serve the peo­ple,” the mayor told the awardees.

He added: “De­spite the chal­lenges

... We use this op­por­tu­nity to show you that we ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­forts through­out the years ... .

we face as a peo­ple, we can be en­cour­aged that Ja­maicans here in St Cather­ine are com­mit­ted to be change agents.”

Scott thanked the awardees for the many hours they have given to trans­form­ing lives and in­spir­ing hope in the parish.
