Annual Reunion and Awards Banquet
Saturday - November 5, 2022
Here we go again! After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, we're returning to the elegant Sts. Peter and Paul Banquet Hall to gather in-person for our Annual Reunion and Awards Banquet. We’ve an exciting evening planned for all to enjoy. The evening will start with our host serving up a delicious serving of curry goat and jerk chicken for dinner. Comedian, Jay Martin, will be steering us through the rest of the evening’s activities and, I trust we'll have a belly full of laughs in between. The Juiceman for sure will have us up on our feet for most of the evening with hit tunes from the 80s, 90s, 2000s and more. Our Consul General, Lincoln Downer, will provide us with an update on Jamaica. We'll be honouring a couple of standout people in our community, Olive Parkins-Smith and Keizs Family, for their tremendous giving back over the past few years. We'll also be awarding a young Fortisan, Rasheido Meikle, in honour of the late Etheline Wallace, for his hard work and achievements on his current journey to complete his studies at KC. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Dominick Shelton, will share with us his inspiring journey as an ED Physician and community advocate. The beautiful and so so talented, Tanya P, will cap off the evening with her phenomenal vocals and lyrics. Prizes and Surprises galore.
