(CNS):  As the new governor continues her tour getting to know the people and places of the Cayman Islands residents of the district of George Town will get a chance Wednesday to meet Helen Kilpatrick at a reception at George Town Hall. The reception – which will include history, culture and heritage – will follow an historic tour of George Town, which the premier is hosting, along with the other George Town MLAs Kurt Tibbetts, Marco Archer, Joey Hew, Winston Connolly and Roy McTaggart. The tour includes Central George Town, the Washington Boulevard area, Watler’s Road and Windsor Park.

Fort George, or what remains of it, on the corner of Harbour Drive and Fort Street will also be included followed by Miss Lassie’s House on South Sound, where Kilpatrick will see the refurbished paintings of Gladwyn K “Lassie” Bush, who began painting at the age of 62 after what she described as a visionary experience.  She will end up at the Town Hall which is also steeped in culture and history where the reception will begin at 5-30pm.
