Annual Emancipation Dinner
The 27th Annual Emancipation Day Dinner, hosted by National Action Cultural Committee on Saturday 8th August, 2009 was a social success. There was a large participating clientele, and a warm friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There were beautiful pan renditions by City Sun Valley Street Orchestra to assist in creating an appropriate ambience.
Even though earlier in the day saw inclement weather the organizers were off fairly on schedule. Spiritual offerings were made by Geeta Vaahini – President Hindu Prachar Kendra, Bishop Earl Hypolite – of the Spiritual Baptist Faith, Oloye Orawale Oranfe of Ife – Chief Olakela Massetungi of Egbe Onisin Eledumare and Servant Ayeigoro Ome – for and on behalf of National Action Cultural Committee. There were lively performances by King Luta, Cindy Alleyne, Aaron Duncan, Ferdiand Smith and Mighty Chalkdust – Dr. Hollis Liverpool.
Among the guests in attendance were the High Commissioner of Nigeria to Trinidad & Tobago and his wife – their Excellencies Mrs & Mrs Musa Jenjen.
The feature address was delivered by Dr. Frances Adelade Fakoya. Associate Professor of Histology & Cell Biology at St. Georges University Grenada.
Earl Knights and his Service Board along with Br. Nyahuma Obika, Dr. Phaedra Pierre and Servant Aiyegoro Ome, kept the event flowing and well coordinated.
Special thanks I think is deserving for Earl Knights and His Service Band.
Special accolades to Chief Servant Makandal Daaga and family who were in attendance and also demonstrating their commitment to make the event a success.
I think the entire organizing committee including the Kumasi Catering Staff should be commended.
