The Media Workers Association of Grenada (MWAG) has donated a quantity of supplies to the Hillsview Home for the Aged in St. John’s as part of activities celebrating media week 2012.
A four member contingent of media workers led by President Rawle Titus visited the home Thursday morning and handed over the supplies to Matron Joy Nedd.
Trustee of the management company of the Hillsview home Compton Branche was also on hand for this morning’s brief handing over ceremony.
Afterwards, media practitioners were given a tour of the facilities and interacted with the senior citizens residing at the home.
The residents and staff were excited at the visit by the media workers and expressed their gratitude for the supplies.
They included adult papers, soaps, cleaning substance, toiletries, gloves, soap powder among other items.
The donation was a combined effort of George F Huggins and Company Grenada Limited, C.K. Super Valu, MWAG and individual media workers on the island.
The visit provided cheerful times including a moment when MWAG President Titus could not say no to a female senior citizen’s demands to be kissed.
Titus also did extempo to a former calypsonian and read to residents from an anthology of unpublished poems from resident Sheila Joseph Caldera who was shot in her head during the American Invasion of Grenada.
The media delegation to Hillsview Home also included MWAG’s Secretary Nicole Best, Grenadian Voice Reporter Nisha Paul and Valisca Ettienne who worked for many years in local television.
Media week continues on Friday with karaoke and Fantasia lime, Saturday with fete match and horse backing riding at old Trafford; and church service, River Tubing and oil down by the Balthazaar River on Sunday.©
