I am very happy that I made the decision to come home for such a momentous occasion. Being on “The Rock” always give me a wonderful feeling but, for such an occasion I will never forget.
Fifty years is a lifetime in many ways. “Happy 50th Anniversary Harps!” You have survived many challenges. Through your tenacity and resilience you have forged a path for many to admire and few to accomplish. You have set the bar at a level that only the highly disciplined may aspire to attain.
Lots of thought, effort and coordination were exhibited in your week long celebrations. Hats off for a job well done! You opened with a Sunday morning church service indicative of your trust in the almighty. ( You acknowledge that you could not survive 50 years without his grace and guidance. The message was delivered by an individual (the priest) that had a first hand knowledge of what you stood for and who you are because, he is a part of your history. Your theme “Brighter Out of Darkness” denotes and tell a story of a steel orchestra and it’s people.) And, you closed with a stunning display of the many talents the harps have been blessed with over 50 years of continuous existence. Oh! what a performance.
Now that we have passed a glorious mile stone let us continue to strive for excellence through the next fifty years. He who does not write and tell his story (history) allows another to do so, which may not be favorable to him/her. Continue to set goals and strive with a vision for, “where there is no vision the people perish.”
Thank you for your recognition for being a small part of what Angel Harps has become. Keep up the good work! I am very proud to let everyone know what we have on that little piece of rock we call Grenada. “Harps yesterday! Harps Today! Harps forever!”
