PRESS RELEASE: Seventy-one former Public Officers were recognised and honoured at a ‘Retirees Dinner’ for their years of service to the territory.

Deputy Governor, Mr David D Archer, Jr congratulated the retirees and esteemed them as persons who have shown extreme dedication to the recovery efforts of the BVI, especially following the storms of 2017.

Mr Archer Jr expressed his gratitude and appreciation for their contributions to the Public Service and encouraged retirees to be optimistic and to embrace future opportunities that may come their way.

Director of Human Resources Department, Mrs Michelle Donovan Stevens told the retirees that they are a part of the Public Service bedrock and their contributions to new health facilities and services, the moulding of academic minds, development of structure and the delivery of essential services will not be forgotten.

Mrs Donovan Stevens said, “Your achievements and longevity reminds us that when purpose trumps the problem, greatness comes from great challenge. I hope that you have a strong sense of accomplishment and appreciation for your role in building this nation and enriching the lives of others.”

The retirees expressed their appreciation at being recognised and honoured for their contribution to the development of the Public Service.

“It was wonderful,” one person said, adding. “I enjoyed myself.” Another honoree said, “A Job well done by the Human Resources Team…congratulations and thank you. It was truly a blessed and exciting evening.”

The 2018 Retirees Dinner was held on October 16 at the Moorings Mainer Inn. The event’s programme also featured a video presentation by His Excellency the Governor, Augustus J. U. Jaspert, remarks by Acting Premier at the time Dr. the Honourable Kedrick D. Pickering, and a Keynote Address by Apostle Curnal Fahie.

Chairperson of the Recognition Committee, Mrs Noreen Callwood-Lewis thanked the businesses that provided special gift certificates for the Retirees Trivia segment of the dinner.  These businesses include Clarence Thomas Ltd, Bananakeet Café, Studio One, Native Son Inc. and Pancake Paradise.
