Old folk party on at Grand Caymanian

| 24/10/2010

(CNS): Nearly 50 seniors were celebrating life at special long weekend get together at the Grand Caymanian Resort as part of Older Persons Month. Seniors from each district performed and were entertained over the three days including a treasure hunt; a movie; a ‘shopping on a budget’ contest at the Strand Foster’s Food Fair; table games and a lunch at Champion House. Retreat organizer, Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) Community Development Coordinator Zemrie Thompson said that the weekend was specifically aimed at giving seniors quality time, a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

“We scheduled fun events to get everyone involved. It turned out to be a really positive interlude and the seniors were able to bond with each other,” she said.

The grand finale was the Saturday evening reception at the Ramada. The seniors enjoyed a sumptuous meal and went on to dance the night away. Entertainment was provided by Clive Bennett and Keisha Webb who both performed solos, and DJ Blemo Ross.

“Anyone who missed this retreat lost out on a great time,” said senior Jane Ramoon. “It was nice that we could come together to share and catch up on old times.”
