Happy Monday & Back to Work!

Happy Monday and Back to Work!

I will admit, that’s not Apple juice. It’s Scotch on the rocks. I think it is ok to bring a little vacay or holiday spirit back to work. Let’s be real, some of us think it’s 2020 all over again and need a strong one. Let’s try not to think that way though.

Of course numbers will sky rocket for January. Try to ignore it. We just concluded the biggest holiday of each year with lots of travelers. Continue to wear your mask and sanitize. Arrange to get your booster if you haven’t yet and remember that we can’t put our lives on hold until 2025 or however long this will last. You will be left behind. Notice I haven’t mentioned what ‘this’ is. We are moving forward.

For those of you like me with a never ending ‘To Do’ List. Let’s not obsess over it. As you check things off, more things will naturally replace them. Get to it when you can. Be confident you are doing your best.

Oh and I really hope they keep the kids in school. Cheers to Monday and have a great, productive week! 🥂

#tbt to the AWARD-WINNING ‘Hands in Art’ Art-tivity Project with Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston!

20200211_045317

The talented, Beyonce Findley with her Drawing framed by Frame Art Jamaica with Gabrielle Burgess a.k.a Suga and classmates, Jaheim Watson (L) and Tyrese Dixon (R) at Suga Lifestyle’s V-Day Pop Up Shop on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at The Jamaica Pegasus.

#tbt to the AWARD-WINNING ‘Hands in Art’ Art-tivity Project with Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston!

Earlier this year in February 2020, ‘Hands In Art’ was a Suga Lifestyle & Rotaract Club of New Kingston (Ig: @nkrcjamaica) Arts and Entrepreneurship Initiative with Lister Mair/Gilby High for the Deaf. The Project also had the support of e-Learning Jamaica Ltd. (Ig: @elearningja).

‘Impact Through Unity’ was Rotaract’s theme for the year, which inspired the majority of the Art pieces the kids were guided to create.

All proceeds from their sales and part proceeds of GW Art sales at Suga Lifestyle’s V-Day Pop Up Shop in February went towards the students’ educational resources and the school’s infrastructure. There is still a need for more funding, for instance, to supply classrooms with fans that are currently without.

Congrats to Rotaract Club of New Kingston for being recognized by Rotaract District 7020 for this meaningful project, placing 1st amongst different Carribean territories! 👏🏾🏆#SugaSnaps

20200707_052359

I am grateful we were able to complete this project together before COVID-19.

IMG-20200606-WA0005

Immediate Past President, Alex Robinson, recently handed over a Digital Thermometer to the Principal of Lister Mair/Gilby High for the Deaf, which they needed to proceed with their CSEC Exams.

Rotaract Club of New Kingston’s work continues with Lister Mair, as they also handed over 30 Face shields. Communication is mainly through lip-reading in the Deaf community, so it is important for them, especially the teachers, to use face shields instead of masks.
