In the name of love
Staff of Barbados Port Inc. did not let February pass without showing the spirit of Valentine.
This year they were able to demonstrate their passion for the season in poetry and in song at BPI’s post-Valentine after-work lime held at the company’s Sports and Cultural Club.
According to event organiser, Meshell Rawlins of the Accounts Department, the purpose of the event was to promote camaraderie among staff.
“Our staff was treated to a sumptuous dinner and we had lots of fun listening to the poems and the Karaoke,” Rawlins said.
“Our heartfelt thanks to all the contributors, especially for the prizes of a weekend for two at the Crane Resorts, that went to the karaoke winner and dinner for two at the Hilton, for the winner of the poetry. Of course, consolation winners did not leave empty handed as they too were also given prizes.”
Clyde Springer was the eventual winner of the karaoke competition with Durham Town, while Tracy Barrow copped second place with Saving All My Love. Third was Tony Bishop who sang El Paso and fourth, David Lashley with Great Pretender.
In the poetry competition, Sheron Hartley took first place with Undying Love, Kerry-Ann Deane settled for second place with a poem titled You were a Dream Inside my Heart, while third was, Cherise Fitt with My Unborn Child. Poems were later placed on a Tree of Love made from bamboo.
