Young and old Brackers and visitors enjoyed an evening filled with music and fun at the Rotary Club’s 28th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Monday, 7 December.

The event took place at the Christmas Season was officially declared open by Commissioner Ernie Scott. Students of West End Primary School and Spot Bay Junior High School who sang provided musical entertainment, and Cayman Brac High School students presented Christmas songs played on steel drums, guitars and clarinets.

Rotarian and Club President 2009/2010 Andrea Stevens passed the honor of lighting the tree to her son, Daniel Grant, and his best friend, David Tibbetts. The two year one students of West End Primary School proudly turned the light switch together and Cayman Brac’s Christmas tree brightened up the night.

The gathered crowd hummed along when Rotarians and their spouses sang ‘Joy to the world’, before Rotary Club President Andrea Stevens thanked all who contributed to this event during her speech. One lucky Cayman Brac resident was announced winner of $2,000 Cash after the “Holiday Shopping Spree” Raffle.

From the moment Santa Claus, Mrs Santa and Frosty arrived they presented many gifts and candy for all which marked the evening’s highlight for the children.
