The Church of the Resurrection, La Horquetta held its inaugural Independence Dinner and Dance Evening on Friday, August 30. The venue was decorated by the Events Management Committee with our photo booth provided by Althena Designs.
Our evening opened with the National Anthem followed with an opening prayer by our parish priest Fr Dwight Merrick. The parish hall held approximately 180 persons who were not only part of our parish cluster i.e. Carapo and Cumuto but also had visitors from Malabar, San Raphael, Talparo, Brazil and Laventille.
The buffet-style dinner commenced at 7 p.m. Our menu was a choice of parsley rice or vegetable noodles, buttered cassava, potato balls, stewed green pigeon peas, calypso chicken or fried fish with fresh salad.
The DJ Dynamic Sounds/Oswald Gabriel created a soothing environment through his music selection during the meal. Once dinner was served the partying commenced as our DJ upped the tempo.
Our dinner guests played ‘the hot seat’ where three prizes were won. It was followed by drawing of the door prizes and finally announcing the best dressed of the evening. The evening concluded with dancing by all our guests.
