Bon Voyage Mr. Prince
Saying goodbye is never an easy thing, but as the sentiments were expressed to Mr. Gregory Prince, outgoing St. Catherine Social Development Commission’s Parish Manager, at an intimate reception held in his honor, at the Caymans Golf Club, on Thursday, August 18, farewell was shared joy.
Chairman of the St. Catherine Parish Council, and Mayor of Spanish Town, Councillor Norman Scott, who initiated the reception, said when Mr. Prince told him recently he would be leaving and the circumstances surrounding his departure, immediately, he said to him – “I salute you, for having taken the big step in striving for excellence. Mayor Scott said, on behalf of the St. Catherine Parish Council and the citizens of the parish, he took pleasure in expressing how appreciative he was of the energy, the effort and the way in which Mr. Prince went about executing his business, touching the lives of many in the parish. He made reference to the many initiatives he was a part of, particularly the Heritage Tourism venture, and the significant role he played in it all”.
Secretary/Manager of the St. Catherine Parish Council, Mr. Michael Morris said Mr. Prince has, over the years been a part of us; always supporting every venture of the Parish Council. On behalf of the staff of the St. Catherine Parish Council, he wishes him and his family God’s blessings in his new environment”.
Several other sentiments were expressed from members of the Spanish Town Heritage Tourism Secretariat and St. Catherine Parish Council staff members.
Mr. Prince in his reply said it was indeed a pleasure serving the parish of St. Catherine over the last three years. He said he was grateful to have experienced the kind of support and positive energy from all the partners, especially the Parish Council. He said while he did not know what the future holds for him and his family, it is his hope to return one day and continue to make a significant contribution to the development of Jamaica land we love.
Mr. Gregory Prince has been Parish Manager for the St. Catherine Social Development Commission since 2013.
Bon Voyage Mr. Prince!
