Each year, I write saying congratulations to the Emerald Creative Vibes Organisation of New York, for their exemplary work within the community, capped off with their annual dinner and awards ceremony.
However, this year, on behalf of both myself and Marketing, News & Information Media - MNI Alive Media - I wish to extend my heartfelt thanks to the organisation for their award to MNI Alive Media, as part of their annual stories of recognition.
This year's awards also saw recognition plaques being presented to five other deserving recipients to include; Jerry Jarvis, Merle Galloway, Cilvine "Ena" Osborne-Tyson, Mary Blake and Clayton Fenton.
All these individuals were recognised for their service and work within the community, and their various fields of endeavour by the Emerald Creative Vibes Team. Well done and congratulations to all.
I must still offer my congratulations to the Emerald Creative Vibes Organisation, for after 15 years of commitment to this journey, they have once again delivered an awards ceremony of exceptional style.
Ladies adorned in fine dresses and gentlemen dressed to their best were in attendance. This event by Emerald Creative Vibes signals a tradition of community spirit, and the emboldening of nationalism that I am of the view will last for many years well into the future.
The Guest of Honour, who flew in directly from Montserrat, was the Former Minister of Government, Hon Charles Kirnon.
Hon Kirnon delivered an address that was fitting for the moment and the audience, but also he cemented his speech with a dose of realism in stating the realities facing the homeland, Montserrat. He called for more to be done towards helping the island back to general prosperity.
Miss Ayanna Irish once again showed her class in delivering two renditions that were spine chilling. Her rendition of the Montserrat national song, and also of the U.S National Anthem, saw attendees raising their hands in applause as she reached notes that denoted her quality and vocal range. Well done to Miss Irish.
The Emerald Creative Vibes Organisation will continue to showcase their work in the community as time goes on, adding to many of the humanitarian efforts they have already put forward to assist quality of life for many persons - to also include senior citizens who still speak of the good work the organisation has completed on their behalf.
We wish them well, with many more years of success and recognition.
