ARTS IN THE COMMUNITY
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR – Gail A. Nunes July Editor
Summer arrived at our doorstep with characteristic warmth and expectancy, and happiness abounds. With some trepidation, we also acknowledge that half of the year is gone. But we have no time to despair. As we look around, we see faces that glow in the sunshine; children running through sprinklers to cool down from the heat, families gathering on beaches and fun parks; our very own Summer Workshop in full swing with the formation of new bonds of friendship as our children spend time together.
Yes, this is our pleasure – this wonderful summer break before we confront the next season, or it confronts us! With the cooperating weather and the deluge of activities choked into a mere few months, GCA throws its doors wide open to showcase another season of activity that builds on the longevity of our purpose and supports our theme, We Bridgin’. And the excitement has already begun. Continue reading →

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR – Lear Matthews – April Editor.
Greetings! Wah happenin dey?…..We are grateful for the continued support of our patrons and delighted to welcome new readers, as the long anticipated spring blooms fresh daffodils, tulips and water lilies in both our adopted home and our dear land of rivers, streams, savannahs and majestic mountains. A country as rich in tradition as its natural resources, yearning for transformation that would unleash its real potential, and to which many in the Diaspora will truly call “home” again.

Subject: BUXTON NEWSLETTER – FEBRUARY 2015
Hello Villagers and Friends of Buxton.
We are pleased to share with you the Buxton-Friendship Express newsletter for the month of February 2015. We encourage you to share it with your family members and friends who may not be on our address list.
As you know, this year (2015), marks 175 years since our premier village was purchased by previously enslaved African labourers. We would like to encourage groups, particularly those in Buxton, to organize and promote events fitting this milestone. Let us show appreciation for the sacrifice, love and legacy from our ancestors!
In New York, we plan to have a 175th Anniversary Gala Banquet Celebration on May 16, 2015. Awards will be given to villagers for outstanding contributions and service to the community. There will be a keynote address, cultural presentations and a delicious assortment of traditional dishes. We would greatly appreciate your contribution and/or support.
