The Public Service Pensions Board, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, will hold a “Pensioners Appreciation” event at Pedro St. James on Wednesday, April 12, from 3-9 p.m.
Pension board managing director Jewel Evans Lindsey said, “In organizing the event, we are partnering with government and others to thank our retirees, who make up 20 percent of our membership, for their services and contributions over the years.”
Pension board staff will be on hand to provide information, and members will also be able to get free health screenings, courtesy of the Health Services Authority, and advice from CINICO.
There will also be outreach programs, including Meals On Wheels and other community services from the local Seventh-day Adventist Church and the Cayman Islands Lions food pantry.
Organizers said covered seating will be provided and the Mosquito Research and Control Unit will spray the area a few days before the event.
Entertainment will include musical group Jubilate, as well as students from the John Gray Swing Band. Local artist Nasaria Suckoo-Chollette will give a poetry reading, and spot prizes and giveaways will be up for grabs. Food will also be provided.
Free transportation from all the districts will be provided for pensioners to and from the event. Call 917-8851 to confirm attendance.
