$10 Christmas presents by young Brac entrepreneurs

| 07/12/2010

(CNS): Coconut Creations, the business formed by the Junior Achievers on Cayman Brac this academic year, will be selling candleholders and fragrance holders made from coconut shells throughout the Christmas season at various locations on Cayman Brac. Produced in a variety of colours, the product, handcrafted by the high school entrepreneurs, can be used as candleholders, for holding potpourri or for holding change and decorative rocks. At $10 each, Coconut Creations says they make a great gift for Christmas. The company was formed at the first meeting of the Junior Achievement programme for the 2010/2011 session on 12 October at the Cayman Brac High School.

Twenty-seven students in Years 10 to 12 signed up for the 18-week programme in which they are challenged to produce and sell a product. During the first five meetings the achievers created their company’s name, motto, mission statement, bylaws, charter and conduct other important business.

A spokesperson from the company said that sales so far were good and the feedback was very positive. Cayman Brac residents interested in buying a Coconut Creations product should look out for the young achievers, who will be selling them at various functions and locations leading up to Christmas and beyond. Anyone in Grand Cayman and Little Cayman who would like to place order can do so by calling 938-0617 or emailing cyb.junior.achievement@live.com

Sponsors of the Junior Achievement on Cayman Brac are: The Rotary Club of Cayman Brac, Cayman National Bank, Brac Reef Beach Resort, MLA Moses Kirkconnell and the Alexander Hotel.
