  Greetings Online Family:


To those who came out and supported last weekend events, on behalf of the Organizations and us here at Arious, Thank you very much for your support!  Unfortunately, we didn't make it to either, but according to the folks who attended both were great.   


I understand from Mrs. Samuels of the Trinidad and Tobago Working Women's Committee (WDC), the attendance to their event "Madhatters" Hat show and Tea party was good, and everything turned out wonderful.  


As for Pan Masters Steel Orchestra’s 20th Anniversary Celebration.  I understand the attendance was overwhelming, and I have been getting  rave reviews about the performances.

Again, thanks for supporting both events.

This weekend we are back to nothing happening in town.  I did hear Rupee is schedule to be here this weekend though.

So Natalie, I guess we will see you this weekend, since I hear your boy (Rupee) will be performing in town.
