50 years ago: Birthday party for one-year-old

In this photo that appeared in the April 26, 1967 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, scuba divers booked to stay at Cayman Kai pass through Customs.

In the April 26, 1967 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a precursor of the Cayman Compass, East End correspondent Charles Dixon wrote:

“Messrs. Daiz Conolly and Churchill Bodden returned on the 16th to spend their vacation. They work for N.B.C.

“Mr. Leonard Pearson joined the Island Prince at the George Town dock on the 17th. The ship sailed that afternoon.

“On the 22nd, a birthday party was held at the United Church Manse by members of the Sunday school for little Faye Williams, daughter of the Rev. and Mrs. Lewin Williams. Faye, who was one year old on the 23rd, received many gifts and seemed to have enjoyed the celebration.”

Also in this newspaper edition, a group of scuba divers traveling with Atlantis Divers in La Grange, Illinois, is pictured passing through Customs. The group, who stayed at Cayman Kai, flew in on a LACSA charter flight.
