Today’s Editorial, 28 July: Support Island Living Show

Still fixing up your home or office following Hurricane Ivan?

Or are you thinking about remodelling, but need some ideas.

Maybe you need to do some work on your outside garden space and are at a loss of where to start.

Then you need to get out to the Family Life Centre this afternoon beginning at 4 and take part in the fifth annual Island Living Show.

We often hear each year that annual events are going to be bigger and better than previous years.

Sometimes it’s true.

This time you can bet on it.

The show has been expanded to include tents and exhibits outside the Family Life Centre Hall.

The move allows more exhibitors, vehicle displays and charity organizations.

Inside the hall those who attend will be able to test drive a lawnmower at Uncle Bill’s booth and get a chance to win 50 per cent off on storm panels from Hydes and Sons.

Healthy Environment Solutions will be conducting min demonstrations to showcase how people suffering from allergies and asthma can combat dust mites in their living quarters.

Meet Cayman television personalities at the booth of the show’s host, Cayman 27.

Inside Out, a premier publication of Cayman Free Press, will be on hand in a booth that resembles the fa├žade of a traditional Caymanian home.

There are 44 exhibitors in all and each has a special way to convey their message to Island Living Show attendees.

Cooking demonstrations, which proved so popular last year, will be back and there will be a series of five master classes throughout the day on Saturday where visitors can learn secrets of the trade from exhibitors.

All the exhibitors at the Island Living Show are local businesses that need the support of local buyers.

Go meet them and see what they have to offer.

If the incentives of unique booths and information aren’t enough to get you motivated, remember that each entrant stands a chance to win one of 10 Cayman Airways tickets.

If you miss the show this afternoon, don’t worry.

Doors re-open tomorrow at 10am and, as always, admission is free.
