The Royal Bahamas Defence Force’s Rangers Program organized a Family Fun Day to raise funds for a bus that is needed to transport the participants to various locations on Abaco.
At the forefront of the fundraising were Able Seaman Marco King assisted by Parents in Action Group President Lukie Innocent and Telanna Newbold, event coordinator.
Newbold was pleased with the support and turn out of the event stating that 500 dinner tickets were sold.
Indeed, the event provided a family and fun-filled atmosphere with popular games, a bouncing castle, entertainment and lots of food and drinks. Many of the Rangers parents pitched in to help, and Leading Seaman Athama Bowe assisted Able Seaman King on the grill to serve up tender, mouthwatering ribs and chicken dinners.
Able Seaman King boasted that this year’s program is the best it has ever been since its establishment particularly because of the parents’ involvement. The Rangers program was introduced approximately 11 years ago, and teaches discipline, dedication and determination to the young people involved.
Newbold said they are looking forward to a few more fundraisers, and will have a stall at the upcoming Island Roots Festival in Green Turtle Cay in May.
Innocent joined his colleagues in thanking the public for their continued support.
