50 years ago: Young North Siders join church fellowship

In the Sept. 20, 1967 edition of the Caymanian Weekly, a precursor of the Cayman Compass, “North Side News” correspondent Nettie McCoy wrote:

“Divine Worship in the United Church on the 17th was conducted by Rev. L. Williams, Minister of the Charge. During the service, four young candidates were received into the full fellowship of the Church – Ezzard Miller, Handel Whittaker, Jewel Whittaker and Lynne Greene. The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper was observed at the close of the service.

“It was a very impressive service and the minister preached a very suitable and inspiring sermon.

“Those leaving for the U.S. recently were Mr. Oriel Smith to Hagerstown, Miss Glenda Miller to Miami for a two-week visit, Mr. Randolph Ebanks to Jacksonville, Messrs. Billy Ebanks, Franklin Smith and Stanley Douglas to take up work with NBC, Messrs. John Wesley Ebanks and Sammie Ebanks to the S.S. Imperial Ottawa.

“Mrs. Doris Parker of Rum Point returned from a short visit to the States on the 11th. On the same plane were a group of divers who were staying at Rum Point. Unfortunately, the weather was not so fair, owing to the effects of Hurricane Beulah.
