Jersey Day at the St. Catherine Municipal Corporation
Members of Staff St. Catherine Municipal Corporation, on Friday, October 13, 2017, wore Jerseys of their favourite club/country teams in support of breast cancer awareness month. This was a timely venture as it tied in well with the cross island run. They were also on hand to cheer the athletes as they entered the park and passed on the messages to Mayor Scott.
One staff member said that even though she was not an athletic person, she totally enjoyed the activity; she said it was fitting because she was wearing her jersey and she was happy to have been a part of it. A contribution was taken from staff members and Councillors who were present. A total of Eleven Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($11,500.00) was collected and will be sent to the Jamaica Cancer Society to be used for cancer research.
Other activities for Local Government Month will be mentioned in short order.
