A large crowd gathered on the Cabinet Grounds last night [Dec.3] to attend the Premier’s Tree Lighting Ceremony.
Shortly after arriving, the Premier approached a seated crowd and invited the children to join her in decorating the trees. Primary 5 children from schools across the island were invited to attend the event. The Premier and children went about decorating the trees with balls, bows and candy canes while the Steel Pan Group provided music.
Premier Cox addressed the crowd and the tree lights turned on before performers entertained those gathered; including saxophonist Shine Hayward, violinist Latannia Ellerbe, the Precious Melodies Youth Male Choir, as well as a performance by the “Cabinet Office Choir.”
