Wag Water Valley Development Committee Feted Moms On Mother's Day
May 15th, 2013: Wag Water Valley Development Committee
Mothers' Day, May 12 was memorable for all the mothers and those participating in a special Mothers' Day Brunch hosted by the Wag Water Valley Development Committee.
Yours truly, had the distinct pleasure of experiencing this exciting event first hand!
The event, to raise well needed funds for the Dietary Department of the Annotto Bay Hospital, was held at the serenely beautiful Tapioca Village Retreat, Devon Pen, St. Mary, Jamaica
It was expected to be fun-filled, food-filled, event topped off with the soothing voices of Noddy Virtue and Jodian Pantry and it turned out just right.
The caterers were busy right throughout the day serving breakfast, lunch and eventually dinner; all delectable Jamaican dishes - no one can complain about the food; it was there, plenty of it, available right throughout the day!
And yes, the bar was open too, provided a wide array of local drinks and liquors.
DJ Speng provided just the right tunes for the fresh mix of mothers right throughout the day - young, mature, and old moms.
One exciting aspect was the Karaoke segment!
Yes, you guessed it :-). And it was pretty good. One stand out was certainly "Dr. Reddie", a local from the area, with his rendition of BabyFace's "THE DAY - You gave me a son"; excellent local talent.
By the way, he won himself a free reflexology treatment from the spa services that was on offer!!
Other exciting prizes, including craft items and gift baskets were awarded to participants.
Meanwhile the kids were having a ball- in the pool and on the swings! I had a real hard time getting my daughter out of the water- not even to eat!
And sealing the evening off came Noddy Virtue and Jodian Pantry! Two finalists from our local rising star television series (few years ago).
One of their renditions "Bed of Roses" had the appreciative audience captivated for a while.
It was certainly a wonderful evening for the mothers. Well done Wag Water Valley Development Committee! Well done again Tapioca!
Proceeds from the event will go directly to the Dietary Department at the Annotto Bay Hospital in St. Mary.
