A Christmas treat

 

Children from communities across St Lucy received their annual Christmas treat today compliments MP Denis Kellman.

 

Kellman said it was always a joy to watch the children running around and enjoying themselves.

“It’s an annual party. It’s something that we have been doing for the last 22 years. It’s growing every year. This is a very good crowd for this time. It will get a lot bigger later on. So I’m just hoping we have everything in place for everyone. But this is the season for giving and this is just our way to give back,” Kellman told Barbados TODAY.

The festivities, which were held at Kellman’s constituency office in Pie Corner, were also extended to the adults who will be treated later in the evening.

“We usually go up until six for the children and then we have an after party for the adults where they can come get food and relax,” he said.

The children were treated to food, snacks and drink. They also frolicked in jumping tents and played with clowns.

    We teach people how to treat us. And our children learn from our example.
    Speaking generally, I hate to see big people settling for” anything” at Christmas time and cultivating that mentality in their children.
    Some people are so wrapped in the self-defining ” poor, black man” syndrome that they accept a standard that is unacceptable to others who understand their own worth.
    There is nothing wrong with a nice Christmas party in proper surroundings with seasonal decorations, including table cloths.
    And many charitable groups provide that for the less fortunate.
    Again, speaking generally, I think most people simply want proper representation from their MPs and to see year-round, positive changes in their communities which uplift their standard of living.
    Nothing more.

    Dennis thanks once again for bringing cheer to the children and folks up North. I can remember the old days when the children’s only toys were windmills made of shoe box card board a common pin and a sugarcane arrow and cotton reel push and steer.
