    I too agree Henry does deserve his award for his dedication and hard work to the CNCF.   One thing about Henry, as I have learned, is that before he put out anything to the public from CNCF, it must be well scruntinized by him, the right way or no way.  Congrats. Henry.

    Congrats Mr. Muttoo!!  You have done wonderful things to open our eyes to many things Cayman. I wished that Dave Martins was by your side.   


    Mr. Rundown

    Yes!! My numerous nominations of Henry Muttoo have finally borne fruit! Very well deserved and congrats Henry. Congrats also to Leonard, well deserved for a lifetime of service to banking and his community.

    To Pas D. Over – get off it! if you knew Henry or ever worked with him you would know of his passion and committment to preserving arts and culture in Cayman and for introducing same from our Caribbean neighbours.

    Congrats to Mr Henry Muttoo. He has certainly been one to have Cayman at heart and is liked by all. Also would like to congratulate Lana Ebanks from Lime on receiving Employee of the month of November. She too is well known and loved by all, and is one of the best Operators and Receptionist that you could ask for. A  real asset for Lime. Only wish that all of the telephone operators was stationed here in Cayman, as it is so frustrating to have to call themin Jamaica and get information and they dont even know Cayman so they usually have a hard time assisting us.

    Two awards well deserved, add Dr.Yin to the "deserved" list from the last MBE awards.

      Then where is the others? Dr Sedano, Dr Baredo, Dr Christian, Dr Marzuca, Dr Bromley, Dr Tomlinson, Dr Vivek, Dr Robertson and Dr Teeling?. Looks like we need a special award for our Doctors. By the way these Doctors are some of the best you can find around the world. We are grateful to have them here in Cayman.

        Come on folks, the world was not built in a day, so every one cannot be expected to get these awards all the same time.  Eacg year there will be a few chosen.  So work towards next year.

    Congratulations to Mr. Muttoo, the hardest working executive I know! 

    Thanks Henry for your enduring passion for the heritage and culture of the Cayman Islands. Thanks for preserving the traditional music and songs of the Cayman Islands for all to hear and enjoy. Thanks for your tireless efforts to acquire, secure, conserve and preserve the home and works of Cayman's visionary, intutive artist, Gladwyn K. (Miss Lassie) Bush.  Thanks for all you have done, and continue to do, to unearth our buried treasures and bring to light so many things Caymanian that may have been missed along the way.  So happy that you have received this well-deserved award.

    "….the work continues."
