The Green Turtle Cay Falcons flag football teams out-dueled the Man-O-War Makos’ Junior and Senior teams to remain perfect in preseason games as the Abaco Youth Football Association looks to get the regular season started in early November.
During the evening of July 9, the 40th Anniversary of Independence Cultural Extravaganza brought a large crowd to the Murphy Town Park soccer field, where a decorated stage and several tents had been set. Two large tents offered shelter and seats, and included a section for the dignitaries, among them Administrator Preston Cunningham, Permanent Secretary of State, Alexander Flowers and District Superintendent of Education, Dr. Lenora Black.. The evening included music from gospel bands, solo singing, rake n’scrape and popular calypso and goombay rhythms. Around 9:00 p.m., Sandra Edwards began the evening performances, and beautifully sang the National Anthem and “This Land is my Land.”
