    It always amazes me when the NCVO send out their list of entertainers every year they miss out one who has been in every single TELEPHON since they started on CITN/Cayman27. Every one.

    Joan (Watler) Wilson is the name of the lady who celebrated her 80th birthday last month. She will be there today (Sat) reading one of her poems about Cayman life when she grew up.

    Now why doesn't that make their release?

    This would be awesome if there was actually some talent to see.

      I can't speak for the others but Swanky Kitchen Band rocks! I saw them perform at Taste of Cayman earlier this year and they were awesome! They have really grown in talent over the years. But all in all, it's for a good cause so let's dig deep in our pockets to support this worthy organization that is truly doing some great work in our community.

    After reading everything about how the government constantly screws tings up and wastes money,  it's nice to see an article about an organization that accomplishes something.
