Toronto Saints and Last Lap Lime August 1; and Saints Caribjam dance – 31 July 2015

Toronto Saints and Last Lap Lime August 1; and Saints Caribjam dance – 31 July 2015

It is a little known fact that the Toronto Saints Alumni Association was one of the two alumni groups which first jointly visualised the concept of an annual gathering of Toronto alumni from schools in Guyana, a concept from which the Last Lap Lime was created.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the Last Lap Lime and, to honour the occasion and Saints’ initiation of and participation in it, we are offering all purchasers of tickets to the Saints Caribjam dance on Friday 31 July, 2015, an opportunity to obtain tickets to the Last Lap Lime at HALF PRICE.  Instead of paying the advance charge of $10, the purchaser of a Caribjam ticket may obtain a Last Lap Lime ticket for only $5.  This applies also to all who may have already purchased their Caribjam tickets. Please contact your Saints ticket supplier at your earliest convenience.  [See advertising flyers below] Continue reading

NEAR GEORGETOWN’S HARBOR

When the Demerara becomes muddy and rumbles

And the coast washes in the Atlantic’s tumble

There lies green blankets of sugarcane flat lands

Where the ships announces themselves so grand

Nautical charts and instruments rules the stars

– by Dave Martins.    (Hear song “Guyana Coming Back” By Dave martins and the Tradewinds at end)

From I was a youth, as my Jamaican friends would phrase it, I have always been one of those “let me see for myself” guys. Sure, I read the news releases and listen to the social comments, but I’ve learned you can also get a pretty useful grasp of something in your society, almost instantly, from simply observing it in its various aspects, and, most of the time, it’s not a complicated exercise: you can do it casually, just driving the street, or walking the neighbourhood, or flying over the territory.

You spot the change; you see what’s added or what’s absent. In the same half-hour drive, for example, you notice the repaired bridge work on the Embankment Road, as well as the neglected City Hall wooden structure in town. Information sinks in.  So, as I’ve said before, I’m an observer. (Incidentally, that is also the genesis of many of the songs I write; I’m delving into something I’ve noticed.)  Continue reading
