Fig Tree News TeamProps to Lizzie Mackey for yet another successful Boys Club presentation at St. John's Parish Hall on Friday night, this time a "career day" cross-section of professionals from the Harbour Island business community ... officers from the defence force, a nurse, a plumber and a police detective offered tough love and exceptional advice to our future leaders.

Check in with Chief Councillor Darrel Johnson and fellow Masons Mario Grant, Leslie Cleare, Justin Higgs,
Peter Higgs and others, as they begin repairing senior citizen homes around the island ... stay tuned for word as to how expat Brilanders can assist the effort.

The Harbour Isand All-Age School rocked the (church) house at St. John's Friday night with their annual Christmas Show, emceed by the lovely Violet Grant. All grades performed songs and dance and poetry, and an especially poignant PTA Committee singalong of a Bahamian take on the "12 Days of Christmas" was a huge audience hit.

Newly-formed Afro Band opens for The Brilanders every Thursday night at Club Seagrapes, so have a listen at what Melody Sweeting, Clement Fowler, Renaldo Grant, Dwight Stewart and Gresham Higgs have been up to these past few months ... and stay tuned for Tempo TV coverage of the recent Briland MusicWalk at Valentines Resrt & Marina, which showcased ten musical acts from all over the Bahamas, including Eleuthera's TaDa Burrows and Ratty Sweeting, and Briland's own Love Child (Toby Tyler, Denaldo Bain and Tryst) and the inimitable Afro Band. Talk on the street suggests a reprise of the Briland MusicWalk in April, with Brilanders and the Hogheads included in the lineup.
