“Miss Olive” was the honoured guest on 8 November, the day before her 90th birthday, at the National Council of Voluntary Organisations’ Richard Arch Children’s Centre in the playground of Miss Nadine’s Pre-School.
The celebration was attended by members of the NCVO board, NCVO senior staff, and friends and family including Mrs. Miller’s brother Alan and his wife, and past NCVO Chief Executive Officer Sandie Wilson who were visiting Cayman.
Those in attendance were welcomed by Janice Wilson, NCVO chief executive officer.
John Alban, care manager of the NCVO’s foster home, read a speech prepared by NCVO Deputy Chairman Mike Donnelly, which outlined Mrs. Miller’s community work.
Four year olds from Miss Nadine’s Pre-School sang “My Island Home” from Olive Miller’s recent book, “Cayman Rhyme Time” and presented her with cards they had made.
Mrs. Miller then uncovered a plaque which read: “This playground is named after MRS. OLIVE MILLER, MBE Cert. Hon., JP
In recognition of her many years of dedication and commitment to the NCVO and the community it serves”.
