The Governor and his wife Stuart and Mariko Jack held a special reception for the participants in Honouring Women Month last week at their house.
Many women connected to sport turned out. Merta Day of the Department of Sports was there as was Cindy Blekaitis in her capacity as counsellor and educational facilitator for the Empowerment and Community Development Agency. She’s also a pretty good rugby and flag football player too. Squash playerDay is now a cricketer too. Day is chair of the recently launched women’s cricket hard ball programme that has three teams competing; Greenies, Stingrays and ESSO Panthers.
Blekaitis announced the winners of the various categories which were given out by Mrs Jack who is very supportive of this annual event.
