chapelWednesday update: Please note that Warren Grant of Grant Construction is also a signatory on the Briland Park account.

8 October 2003

Harbour Island chief councillor Eloise Knowles, the Harbour Island District Council and Briland Park president Andrew Johnson agreed this week to jumpstart the bayfront renovation project on Harbour Island with $20,000 in funding from local government, which effectively means that Harold “Sonny” Waugh of Waugh Construction of Freeport, Grand Bahama will break ground immediately on the construction of two basketball courts and a tennis court for the park. Local contractors will then complete the park by adding a gazebo, gym, computer room and complete shower and bathroom facilities for community use.

The Briland Park project will replace the bayfront’s former dumping site with a state-of-the-art community park.

Briland Park president Andrew Johnson and vice-president Michele Kelly have expanded the board of directors for the renovation effort to now include Cecelia Shepard, Natasha Shepard of Island Real Estate and Warren Grant of Grant Construction. Simone Davis of Aranha Construction is secretary of the campaign, Adrian Major of the Royal Bank of Canada is serving as treasurer, and Anthony Dean, Warren Grant and Natasha Shepard are bank signatories.

Donations to the Briland Park project may be made directly at the Harbour Island branch of the Royal Bank of Canada, c/o The Briland Park account, to the Briland Modem Fund for a tax-deductible U.S. gift, or to any member of the board. For more information, please e-mail
