Deep Water Cay, Grand Bahama – “If anyone questions why we do this, just look at all the smiling faces. They are our neighbors and we love sharing our island with them, ”said Bill Culbreath when he, his wife and staff welcomed over 70 local school children to Deep Water Cay this weekend.
The new management team were pleased to connect with their neighbors and enjoyed every movement of it too as did their staff who helped organize a treasure hunt, limbo competition, and dance games for the visiting kids. Children from Sweeting’s Cay and McLean’s Town were picked up at the local government docks and transported to the island along with local chaperones and Principal of McLean’s Town School, Mrs. Dorothy Lewis.
“The Culbreath’s sent us a flyer about the event and we helped pass the word community,” noted Lewis. “Today’s events have been really well organized and I am pleased to see the relationship between the resort and our community flourish.” Lewis went on to note that many homes in McLean’s Town have at least one member of their family who work at Deep Water Cay so there is a big connection between resort and community.
Bill and Lisa were quick to give thanks to their staff that they felt really stepped up to the plate to help make the kids’ day so much fun. “We must make special mention of our own Sophia Higgs, who was our real ring leader on the day and helped make announcements,” said Culbreath. “It was great to see all our staff participating and enjoying the day just as much as the kids did!” The children, who ranged from age 4 to 14, also enjoyed freshly baked cookies, ice cream and prizes courtesy of the resort before heading home.
The Deep Water Cay team plan to do much more with local residents and will be working actively with local schools for back to school support. Management was also pleased to report that the last few weeks have been very busy at the resort with numbers up by almost 40%. They are fully booked for the July 4th holiday and are planning an American/Bahamian barbeque with fireworks everyone can enjoy.
She's a winner!
