The Pink Rose Ball Committee, after the successful Pink Rose Ball in October, made several donations earlier this month from the proceeds. The largest donation, totaling $15,000 was made to the Abaco Cancer Society. Smaller donations were also made to several individuals. These included Dorothy Malone, Diane Bethel, Nancy Hall and AJ Moss.
On Saturday, June 10, 2017 the High Banks Fire House was the venue for a Darts Night to honour and show appreciation to the hardy volunteer firefighters who in recent weeks had worked hard overcoming the terrible fires which had plagued South Abaco.
