Congratulations to the Monsignor Patrick Anthony Folk Research Centre and the Events Company of Saint Lucia for the virtual celebration of Jounen Kweyol yesterday – a Covid-19 reality. The diaspora got involved and so too cultural groups from around the island.
History is being made this week as for the first time – the majority of finalists in the GET IN THE RING ST. LUCIA 2020 are women. Last year, only one female made it and a call was issued for more gender balance. This year, there are only two males among the six finalists. The final is on Tuesday, tomorrow, and will be streamed live!
And more celebration of women as BOOST – will on Thursday hosts its WOMEN EMPOWERED IN BUSINESS series – a virtual panel discussion featuring three women..see the details in the CBR.
Also in today’s edition – the very latest economic update on St. Lucia.
DREAMY WEDDINGS is on October 31st hosting a special virtual discussion on the future of the Destination Weddings sector. Details in the CBR and visit the CalabashTV YouTube and Facebook pages later today for an interview with Natalie John, who’s mobilising that sector in a Covid-19 environment.
And no need to inform you that Covid-19 is now all around us- wear you masks, social-distance and wash your hands as often as possible. This is uncharted territory.
In the meantime here are our headlines for this week.
