Lions Club of Grand Cayman hosts Pines party

Members of the Lions Club of Grand Cayman and Miss Teen Cayman Islands contestants gather outside the Pines Retirement Home on Saturday.

The Lions Club of Grand Cayman hosted its annual birthday party for residents of The Pines on Saturday.

The club has held a party at the retirement club each year for the past three decades.

On Saturday, Lions Club members and Miss Teen Cayman Islands contestants attended the party, which has become a mainstay on the social calendar of the retirement home. Together they celebrated birthdays while sharing stories, laughter and smiles.

Residents also enjoyed singing, prayers and fellowship, as well as some Cayman cooking.

“Having the diverse age groups all uniting for this great cause is a proud example of this year’s Lions President Cordella Chollette’s theme: Proud Past, New Voices, Exciting Future,” the club said in a statement.
