While residents of Little Cayman will find a new face behind the counter of the island’s post office, Maxine Moore is no stranger to the smallest Sister Island.
The long-time resident has taken over from Carolyn Shroy, who left to further her studies in the United States.
While she spent many of her formative years in Little Cayman, she is well acquainted with all three islands. While educated on the Brac, Ms Moore has worked in insurance and in various government jobs on Grand Cayman.
Even though she enjoys the distinct character of each of the islands, Ms Moore does admit to having a favourite. ‘I love Little Cayman because of its tranquillity,’ she admits.
‘The people are laid back, and one can accomplish everything in one day. Another big bonus – there is no traffic.’
Ms Moore is the daughter of Sam and Mary McCoy, who she says were the tourism pioneers on Little Cayman.
Her appointment is welcomed by Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow. ‘As a long-time resident of Little Cayman, Maxine brings to the postal service a wealth of knowledge of the needs of residents.
‘Her presence will undoubtedly contribute to the enhancement of postal services on Little Cayman,’ she added.
