It was an event I won’t soon forget. And even better, I dont think the community will soon forget either.

We had the young and young at heart display so much creativity it surprised us all!  13 entries in all paraded up and down the Sea Road, Queen’s Highway and several roads in between.  It was important to try to drive by the homes of the elderly or shut-ins and still be able to turn around a 15 cart caravan. No easy task by the way! But we did it!!  We had people cheering us on as we passed, people taking photos, carts tossing out candy to the crowd and a lively gathering at Church Corner when it was all over.  And the bonus was, that all of the proceeds go toward the Man O War Heritage Museum building fund!

It’s very encouraging to know we not only have the support of Second Homeowners, Business people and private individuals,  but also the community on the Island.  They have always shown such wonderful support and it warms my heart to know that we have their commitment to making the growth of the Museum a reality.

And as the old saying goes….. We wish you were here!

If you would like to make a donation to the building fund, you can go here…

All funds received from the web site go directly towards the Museum building fund.  Thank you for your support!
