CHRISTMAS GREETINGS 2021

 

Once again, as we approach the Christmas Season, on behalf of myself and the executive of the Trinidad and Tobago Society of Winnipeg Inc. I wish to extend to all of our members our best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year.

Over the past twenty months, we all have been held hostage to the Covid 19 virus, which has precipitated changes in the running of organizations as a whole.

We the executive are committed to ensuring that the Trinidad & Tobago Society remains functional and vibrant by exploring ways in which we can interact with our members in a meaningful way, during this time of restrictions.

At present we are in the process of reactivating the phoning committee to ensure that everyone will be kept updated on any plans/activities of the organization. We trust you will be receiving a phone call from a member of this committee sometime in the new year.

The executive is now in the process of moving the monthly executive meetings to virtual, effective February 2022. Our members can now renew their membership online by going to our website www.tntwpg.com. Also, we hope to be participating in Folklorama 2022 providing the pandemic has abated and the restrictions are lifted.

During the past months we have lost some of our members, the latest of whom are Winston Jody, Karl Rambarran, Anirude Maharaj, and Esme Stewart.  Unfortunately, due to the nature of the virus, we are unable to get together to pay our respects to these individuals; however, we extend our condolences to the family members and loved ones.

Once again, I wish you all a very merry Christmas season, and God’s blessings for the coming year.

 

Joe Glasgow

 

President
