KGBC launches Sixth Anniversary celebrations
The Keep Grand Bahama Clean (KGBC) Committee kicked-off its sixth anniversary celebrations with a puppet show at the Lucaya International School's Primary division this past Friday. This year, the enthusiastic bunch were entertained by the KGBC puppets who taught the kids how to be good environmental ambassadors.
Bringing brief remarks was KGBC Chairperson, Nakira Wilchcombe, who stated the importance of the organization. "We are so pleased to have shared this presentation to you because we believe that the youngest child can do their part in keeping our island clean," Wilchcombe stated. "It is very important for us to continue to spread the word about how we all can help in our community. It is always a blessing to celebrate another anniversary of such an essential initiative," she concluded.
Anniversary activities continued on Sunday, October 7, as KGBC worshiped with the Freeport Bible Church. Attending the event was KGBC Committee members who listened intently as Pastor Wilbur Outten spoke on stewardship. "I would like to commend the Keep Grand Bahama Clean committee for a job well done in assisting us in the preservation of our island," Outten mentioned. "Too often we litter without being mindful of how the items will be removed. It is not their job to do so, but it is a responsibility that we all must bear," he concluded.
As a part of the month of celebrations, KGBC's live radio show, the weekly 'Talkin' Trash' chit-chat will make its debut on Dove 103.7FM. The call-in show will air this Thursday October 11th at 3 p.m. and will address an array of topics as it relates to our environment. Several guest speakers from KGBC will be featured and there will be lots of opportunities for radio listeners to win prizes.
Celebrations will conclude at the month's close, with the selection of finalists in a KGBC Calendar Competition and an island-wide clean-up scheduled for Saturday, October 27.
