For more than six months The Urban Renewal 2.0 Crown Haven Community Center has been planning ways to bring positive change to Little Abaco. Under the leadership of Center manager, Bishop Ken Carroll, the Center was able form a group of volunteers from the community. The group is called: “Cleanliness is Next to Godliness.”
A meeting was held on Sunday, April 6 at St. Anne’s Anglican Community Center in Crown Haven. A board of directors was elected from the neighborhood and Catechist Tommy Rolle was elected President. Mr. Rolle accepted the position and hopes, with great enthusiasm, that other communities in Little Abaco may follow suit.
Applauding this great move, Member of Parliament for North Abaco, Renardo Curry, was on hand on Friday, April 11 to commend the group’s continuing work. Mr. Curry made a kind donation of gardening tools to assist in the cleaning campaign. The group will also be partnering with other persons in the community.
Mr. Curry noted that programs like these will definitely bring a positive change and indicated that this is what Urban Renewal 2.0 is all about – not just small home repairs but also building relationships with the residents, as well as civic and private organizations to help the constituency grow.
