The National Trust for the Cayman Islands: 30th Anniversary

 

Since its inception in 1987, The National Trust for the Cayman Islands has been dedicated to the conservation of both our island’s heritage and environment.  The exceptional staff and volunteers do a tremendous job to ensure that future generations will have the opportunity to enjoy and cherish our island’s history, national monuments and parks as well as protected environmental areas.  If such assets to our islands that enriches our community are not protected then sadly they may become lost, destroyed or even forgotten.  Thirty years of preservation and conservation by the National Trust for the Cayman Islands is a proud and monumental milestone for the non-profit.  It is one most deserving of being celebrated as are our historic and environmental sites that the National Trust of the Cayman Islands are custodian of.  Some of the popular sites that have become very dear to the hearts of locals and tourists include: the Mission House, Mastic Trail, Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park, and the Blue Iguana Recovery Program

On Saturday, 23rd September 2017, at Pedro St. James Castle from 7-10pm the public are invited to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the National Trust for the Cayman Islands.  Pedro St. James Castle, is the perfect venue to host such an event as it is one of the most iconic and beloved historic sites in Grand Cayman.  This public celebration is one not to be missed, and will include live music and entertainment by Cayman traditional kitchen band Swanky, Ken and Ben, called The Duo and James Geary.  Attendees will have the opportunity to indulge in local food (on sale) and complimentary drinks and canapés. The event is open to the public and is free for members of the Trust; non-members can attend an entry fee $30, which will include Trust membership.  Part of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the Trust’s Caribbean partners that were affected by Hurricane Irma.
