St Joseph wins big


They promised to ‘bring home the bacon’ and they did!

The St Joseph parish ambassadors Cadesha Rouse and Brandon Beckles and their committee showed up and showed off last night at the 2016 Spirit of the Nation Show held at Kensington Oval.

St Joseph parish ambassadors Brandon Beckles and Cadesha Rouse receive their awards from Minister Denis Kellman.

After over four hours of competition, the lion’s share of the awards was handed to the team from the east.

The duo appeared stunned on stage when MC’s Cassandra Samuels and Mark Anthony announced them as Most Outstanding Parish Ambassadors for 2016 but that quickly gave way to pure joy.

Rouse and Beckles told Barbados TODAY the feeling was surreal.

“We promised to bring the bacon back to St Joseph and we were not leaving without it,” an elated Rouse said.

Beckles added, “We fought hard for it, all of us did, so I’m just glad we got rewarded for our hard work.”

Along with copping the title of Most Outstanding Parish Ambassadors, they were awarded Best Parish Project, Best Formal Wear and their attendant Mona Grant-Phillips was awarded Attendant of the Year.

Second place went to Christ Church’s Andrew Ashby and Simone Daniel, who were also awarded Best Costume.

    Congratulations to you Brandon and Cadesha! You made your parish proud of you! There is so much of Old Barbados implanted in the lime stone rock formation of your parish. Thank you once again for a job well done! Some of the most successful American and British families once resided there. St. Joseph has the only Old mine shaft and some of the worlds best geological formations!
