Governor Choudhury tours The Pines

Governor Anwar Choudhury visited The Pines Retirement Home Friday, where he met residents and staff of the home.

The home’s manager Lynda Mitchell, its first manager and current resident Olive Miller, and board member Pamela Webster accompanied the governor on his tour of the 48-bed facility, during which Ms. Miller explained the significance of The Pines’ Wall of History, which exhibited memorabilia charting highlights since the home was opened in 1983.

Sybil Bodden was among the residents that the governor met and talked with, who despite being bedridden, was talkative when she was introduced to her VIP visitor. The governor also met and chatted with several residents in the day room, including Carlene McTaggart, James Parsons, Jerry Harper, Louise Kidd and Emily Bodden.

Pines resident Barbara Ebanks presented the governor with a framed, knitted place mat of Grand Cayman that she had made, and Ms. Miller gave him a signed copy of her latest poetry book “Cayman Rhyme Time with Ms. Olive” for him to give to his daughters.
