Photos: CableVision ‘Salute To Service’ Banquet

January 20, 2015

Bermuda CableVision hosted their ‘Salute to Service’ banquet this past weekend at The Fairmont Southampton, recogising various organisations their contributions to the community.

This year’s recipients were the Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service, Emergency Medical Technicians, Bermuda Police Service and the Bermuda Regiment for going beyond the call of duty to protect the Island and its people.

In addition, Martha Dismont, Executive Director of the Family Centre, was recognised with the annual Rollin Nathan Community Award, while Bermuda CableVision announced they will be making a $50,000 donation over two years to the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Sailing Academy for the purchase of four SL16 Catamarans to be used by young sailors across the Island.


This year, CableVision celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Community Service Awards, which began in December 2004. Since then, dozens of men and women from all walks of life have been recognised for helping their fellow citizens and contributing to their community.

Terry Roberson, CEO, Bermuda CableVision, said, “The men and women of Bermuda’s essential service organisations who we honoured tonight work very hard to make Bermuda a better place.

“We can sleep soundly at night because of their brave commitment to serving and protecting their community. Ms. Dismont is a hero for her tireless work to help Bermuda’s children. They don’t do it for the accolades, but they deserve our recognition of their selfless work and we’re happy to celebrate them tonight.”

    I think the $50,000 should have went to the Family Center not Royal Bermuda. Bermudian Families are struggling.
