The Pembroke Hamilton Club [PHC] Foundation held their 5th Annual Awards Ceremony at O’Hara House last night [July 31] with a total of $35,800 handed out to eight of Bermuda’s young people to help them further their education.

PHC Zebras captain Omar Shakir was the guest speaker and he told the recipients they need to remember the values that they learned at PHC.

    Now this is the good news we need to be shouting from the rooftops – not that gangbanger mess. Congrats to all the recipients. Make us proud!

  5. Hopeful says:

    Wonderful! Keep up the good work both the awardees and the PHC Foundation. That’s what community clubs are supposed to be about.

    To all you haters who were attacking PHC a few months ago, FYI, this is a TRUE reflection of the club, it’s executive, and membership. A house is not a home, as a building is not a club. Thank you PHC for your continued support of youth development, and congrats to the worthy recipients!
