Lions party takes green theme

Tuesday, March 1, 2011
The 14th edition of the Lions Club of Port-of-Spain Central’s annual all-inclusive Carnival party, Class Is Class, takes place on March 5, at the Port-of-Spain Lions Cultural Centre, Fitz Blackman Drive, off Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain.

This year’s theme is Eco Green, in recognition of one of the seven service programmes adopted by Lions Clubs International (LCI) in 2003—Environmental Services. The theme recognises the profound impact of human activity on the natural environment, and the critical importance of restoring and maintaining environmental quality to the overall welfare and development of humanity.

The party—Class is Class—is being held at the Port-of-Spain Lions Cultural Centre, Fitz Blackman Drive, off Wrightson Road, Port-of-Spain, and is dedicated to the memory of past president of the club, Ronald Williams, who died last month and served the country, region and international community with distinction, in the field of environmental engineering. Williams was also an avid character “mas” player in Carnival bands brought out by Edmond Hart, Harold Saldenha and Mavericks.

Headlining the party are Roy Cape All Stars, with vocalists Blaxx (Tanty Woi), Rita Jones and Olatunji Yearwood, and special guests, Black Stalin and 2011 Young King Monarch Benjai. Also performing is everybody’s favourite crossover chutney band, Dil-e-Nadan, with frontline singers Raymond Ramnarine, Derrick Seales and Candi Hoyte. Scrunter’s Pan Groove will provide the sweet sounds of steel for chipping and anchoring the entertainment is DJ Scoobie, with soca selections guaranteed to tease and please. 

Two premium bars, a cocktail bar, an array of ethnic dishes and snacks and secured parking, round off what is arguably the best return on your Carnival investment this season—all for a contribution of $450 per person. All proceeds go to charities supported by the club, which spent just under $200,000 last year fulfilling LCI’s mission to “empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding.” Chartered on May 22, 1962, the Lions Club of Port-of-Spain Central is the longest-serving Lions Club in T&T.
