3D PROJECTS, SPANISH TOWN GETS LABOUR DAY FACELIFT
3D Projects Spanish Town was selected for this year’s Labour Day parish project and as usual scores of volunteers came out to offer support in giving the facility the well-needed facelift.
The scope of work included painting, refurbishing of plumbing, changing some fixtures and beautifying the building and grounds of the premises.
Before 8:00 a.m., Custos Rotolorum, Reverend Jeffery McKenzie and Mrs. McKenzie were on spot rearing to go and did a tremendous job of painting when the work started.
Upon his arrival, Chairman of the St. Catherine Parish Council and Mayor of Spanish Town Councillor Norman Scott was also early on the scene. He pointed out that the project was particularly chosen in keeping with the theme relating to children and so when the Labour Day Secretariat met the decision as to where the project would be held was not a hard one to make.
“The turnout looks good and this is early times, and from history, the attendance is normally tremendous. As it relates to the community individuals, I am pleased and I feel very warm for them to have thought that their effort was needed. I am glad to know they came out to participate and gave their support” said the Mayor.
He pointed out further that the Member of Parliament, Miss Denese Daley and Councillor for the area Councillor Enos Lawrence have lent some support in making the project the success it has been.
Later on in the afternoon Prime Minister the Honourable Portia Simpson Miller who was project-hopping in the parish and particularly at the Fire Department, King Street, Spanish Town popped in on the parish project at 3D and not only viewed the work that was still being carried out but got to work with a roller brush and made her mark.
Over (150) persons attended the project which was supported by sponsors including:
Singer, BH Paints, Sherwin Williams, Faboso Traders, KFC, St. Catherine Cooperative Credit Union, FLOW and volunteers from St. Catherine Scouts Association, Jamaica Constabulary Force – St. Catherine North Division, Jamaica Fire Brigade, Spanish Town, National Youth Service, St. Catherine District Prison, Social Development Commission, Phillipo Baptist Church, Jamaica Cultural Development Commission, The Lions Club of St. Catherine, Gentle Care Ambulance, Junior Council and St. Catherine Parish Council staff members to name a few.
The management and staff of 3D Projects are overjoyed and thankful for the work done at the facility on this Labour Day.
