Brooklyn, NY; May 8, 2020 — Although the nurses at Downstate Medical Center did not get to have their regular, elaborate Nurses Week celebrations this year, due to the disruptive impacts of the deadly CoronaVirus outbreak, they were nevertheless delivered a treat on Thursday, May 7th, by a Brooklyn-based food caterer and owner of Partys R Us, Earlyn Williams, along with some other generous relatives and friends. Specifically, the on-shift nurses at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Medical Intensive Care Unit, the Emergency Room and the Labor & Delivery Unit at Downstate, were the beneficiaries of a package of 47 delicious West Indian lunches and 48 cupcakes.

The gift of the food was received on behalf of the nurses by assistant head nurse, Cheryl Vincent, nurse Lana Colas, and certified nursing assistant Barbara Orama.

Thursday’s generous gesture is part of an ongoing initiative to cook and deliver hot tasty meals to essential frontline workers who are risking their lives performing healthcare duties at local area hospitals and senior homes, under the dire stress of the CoronaVirus pandemic, which has already claimed 14,389 lives in New York City, 86,721 in the USA and 274,983 globally.

This charitable spontaneous project, was launched in mid-April of this year, without any fanfare, press releases or invitations to media houses for coverage or publicity. In fact, this article is only being written, because the author heard about the initiative and insisted on getting the details about it, so the wider community can be informed of the good that is being caused to happen by some of our local, unsung Caribbean-American heroes, who are ironically recognizing our ordinary super heroes — our nurses and doctors.

As Earlyn, the lead organizer of this initiative, puts it, “It’s simply our way of saying thank you to our hardworking local heroes who are working tough long hours to save lives. We do what we do voluntarily, simply because we want our nurses, doctors and other hospital staff, to know that we do appreciate them for all the good that they are doing.”

The other members of Earlyn's Partys R Us team of volunteers are: Amanta Stephenson, Maggie Rechea, Jackie Rechea, Shaniqua Brown, Royston and Tasha Rechea, Sherry Gaillard, Ritch Image Francis and Sean Fortune. Together these individuals have been pooling resources of personal funds, time and cooking abilities to make this charitable outreach possible.

Nurses, doctors and other staff members in various departments at the following institutions, have already received bowls of lovingly prepared, delicious, hot West Indian food from Earlyn and her team of volunteers:
NYU Lancome Downtown Brooklyn; Brookdale Medical Center (with special assistance from Fraudine Peterson and Family); Sheepshead Nursing Rehabilitation Center; Kings County Hospital; and most recently SUNY's Downstate Medical Center.

Next Wednesday, hot lunches would be delivered to Kingsbrook Jewish Hospital Rehabilitation Center. Thereafter, other institutions would be added to the list.


Together, we can overcome the challenges of this CoronaVirus!

Laura Lisa - Better Days (Official Music Video)

LAURA LISA sings "Better Days are Coming"

This talented Caribbean artiste, by way of Grenada, beautifully sings "Better Days are Coming" — a song that's apt for this period of high stress in the lives of so many.

The lyrics are telling and the afro-infused Groovy Soca beat is refreshingly uplifting.

Adding great value to the wholesome nature of this music video is the direction which was given by producer Kaiem "Sonix" Joseph and playwright Urias Peters.

Listen and enjoy the voice, and also appreciate the words, the optics and the story as rendered by Laura Lisa — a rising star, whose other pieces of recorded work are also unreservedly recommended.

The balladic lyrics, the smooth musical arrangements and the captured picturesque scenery (fit for a tourism marketing video)utilized in Denison's well-told story, as seen and heard in the attached musical video, evince a whole lot about the finely-nuanced intelligence of this artiste-attorney of Grenadian origin.

I can hardly wait for the release of his full album, much of which I have sampled and which I understand — "ah soon come."

Brooklyn, NYC; Nov. 25, 2019 — In the spirit of preserving and celebrating the traditions of Caribbean-Americans in New York City, the Cultural Committee of St. Paul’s Church in the Village of Flatbush in Brooklyn, has invited the general public to their annual Dinner Dance & Diversion — a Pre-Christmas Parang & Soca Parang Night, scheduled for Saturday, December 7th, 2019, 7 p.m.

The event which includes a sumptuous dinner of traditional Caribbean Christmas foods and beverages, live Parang and Soca Parang, as well as DJ music designed to induce dancing, will feature the popular group Las Reinas de la Cancion and recording artiste Cheryl Vincent. The Master of Ceremony of the event will be Community Organizer, Gerry Hopkin of Afterwork Networking Wednesdays in Brooklyn.

Parang is a popular genre of seasonal (Christmas) folk music found in most Caribbean states, especially Trinidad and Tobago. The tradition was brought to Trinidad and Tobago by Venezuelan and Colombian migrants during and after the period of colonization in the West Indies. These migrants were primarily of Amerindian, Spanish, Mestizo, Pardo, Cocoa Payol, and African heritage. This mix of ethnicities is strongly reflected in the music itself. Over time, this genre of music spread throughout the Caribbean, and is especially appreciated, played and sung in Grenada, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados and Guyana.

The off-spring of Parang, Soca Parang, is a crossover genre of music that incorporates Parang chord structures and instruments with lyrics sung in English, as opposed to Spanish — the language of original Parang.

The venue of the December 7th Dinner Dance & Diversion — Pre-Christmas Parang & Soca Parang Night, is the exquisite St. Paul’s Auditorium, located at 157 St. Paul’s Place, corner of Church Avenue.

Folks interested in obtaining tickets for this special event of traditional Caribbean foods, drinks, music and dance, in advance, may call the St. Paul’s Church Office at 718-282-2100; Judith Lewis at 347-782-7921; or Jemma Barker at 646-600-1077.

Blue Horizons is a Green Globe Certified property in Grenada, the Spice of the Caribbean, where great artwork is one of the ingredients which enhances the aesthetics of the facility, while also affording visibility to the responsible local artistes.

This is deliberately the case, thanks to the artistic intuitions and the wholistic sensibilities of the CEO at Blue Horizons, Arnold Hopkin.

"The beauty of Blue Horizons Garden Resort is not limited to the great guest-services and the comfortable self-catering facilities of the available suites; nor to that which can be seen in the well-kept outdoors. In no uncertain terms, this is 'an island home away from home,' which also places a premium on the appreciation and display of the work of local artistes, harmonious respect for our environment and the overall value of reasonable human inputs in balancing how we achieve development goals.

The photographs attached here, attest to such a commitment.
