A couple, who opened some of Abaco’s early hotels and worked to preserve kerosene-fueled lighthouses, have been named winners of the Lifetime Achievement Award for the 15th Cacique Awards, the awards organizers announced. David and Phoebe Gale beat out 16 others to win the prestigious Clement Maynard Lifetime Achievement Award. The Abaco couple moved to the Bahamas in 1954 and later became Bahamian citizens. They started out in the tourism industry as hoteliers, but Mr. and Mrs. Gale eventually opened Island Marine, renting small boats and cottages to visitors.
