Glenn Fubler from Imagine Bermuda previously said, “As we conclude this month by celebrating the universal context of hospitality rather than only its implications for the visitor industry, we encourage Bermuda residents to make a special push to reach out to each other this week.”

“Those joining in by making that extra effort to foster connections, will be joining the Premier, the Acting-Opposition Leader and other local personalities committed to nurturing links and strengthening our community fabric.”

Shadow Minister of Tourism Jamahl Simmons said, “Hospitality is an inherent part of our Bermudian culture and has, throughout our history made Bermuda “another world” for each other and for those who come to our shores.

“Hospitality Month provides each of us with an opportunity to reflect on this important part of who we are as a people and seek new ways to display kindness, compassion and empathy to each other.

“We thank Imagine Bermuda and Chewstick for doing their part to highlight the importance of hospitality and we wish them much success in the future.

  1. All looks good, now if it can be a reality…seeing such unity is the $64000:00 question?

    • Its me again says:

      Your idea of unity is everyone shutting up and following the oba blindly as you do.

      • Be real, this “shutting-up” had existed prior to the One Bermuda Alliance becoming Bermuda Government. As a matter of fact that is why they are today our leaders…

    • Photo-op fake smiles, while Bermudians are being treated like S!@# !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So Chewstick moved from Court Street to Front Street.I guess its safer to Chew on the stick ,on Front Street with Front Streets blessings than Court Street,with no protection from the Powers that be.Keep on Chewing on the stick beside those people who drink on the alcohol and both of you drink your way ,and smoke ,your way,blissfully,into the hell fire.Where you will eventually end up.Peace.

    • sage says:

      Can someone send a nurse to check on Takbir?

    • Its me again says:

      Chewstick moved because the owners of their building decided to put a resturant/bar there because they would make more money from the rent.

      The rest of your statement is gibberish.
