Greetings On-Line Family
 

Hope all of you are fine!!!

Well, I’m happy to inform you that we have met our deadline for completing our DC Caribbean Carnival 2k6 DVD, we are currently finishing up the odds and ends.  To the many who pre-purchased it, look out for your copy, it will be mailed to you in a day or so!  Post Production was very time-consuming, lots of hard work, and lots of fun for me, and I'm pleased with the end result.  I believe we captured everything on this years' Carnival. 

I want to thank all the participants, especially the Bands who took part in making this Carnival a success, and really without them there would have been nothing for me to capture.  They are: Afri Carnival, Bahama Junkanoo, Caribe, Crossroads, DC Pan Jammers, De Islands Masqueraders along with The visiting St. Croix Majorettes, Garage Boyz, Grenada Jab Jab, Ice Carnival, Jackie & Associates, Panisha, Pan Masters Steel Orchestra, Rascalz, Roots & Culture, Shortmus Production/Zodiac, Super Jocks, Trini Pan America, VI Carnival Troupe, and Washington Rampage. 

A word to the Bahama Jankanoo band, your pace was so fast that by the time I got to shooting the parade, I had missed your entire band/presentation and was unable to capture you on the road, but I did capture your costumes at the DiManche Gras show.  I was told you were wonderful with your performance and music on the road, and that's clear by your winning of Best Small Band of the Year. 

To the bandleaders my company sponsored Ice Carnival, Jackie & Associates, Shortmus Productions and Washington Rampage, We are happy to have sponsored you, and you have lived up to everything our sponsorship contract entailed.  Additionally, all your costumes were very beautiful.

For those who have not purchased the DVD, I strongly suggest you do so, it’s a real good keepsake and very entertaining.  So purchase one today, and check out the "Sight and Sounds of DC Caribbean Carnival" 2K6.

Msgr. Albert is expected to attend. The Honorable Shirley Nathan Pulliam, Delegate in the Maryland House of Delegates, is Honorary Chair.

·     ♦  Silent auction  ♦  Door & other prizes      ♦Musical entertainment

*subject to restrictions

Luncheon Contribution: $60.00 (20% tax ded.) 

per person.  Luncheon  should have been fully paid 

for by July 5, 2006.

Raffle tickets are available through start of 

luncheon at $5.00 each Book of 10 for $45.00,

other donations would be appreciated.

Checks should be made payable to: Helping Hands

for the Poor, Inc., Memo line: St. Patrick’s

Foundation, Jamaica.

 

The luncheon is planned because the occurrence

of several hurricanes and floods, which have ravaged

 the island of Jamaica, has resulted in reduction of 

the operating funds for the Foundation and other 

similar organizations.  This reduction of financial 

resources adversely affects the ability of the 

Foundation to carry out its vision to equip and 

empower the Inner City Youth with Education and 

Skills Training.  As the island has not fully 

recovered from the damages of hurricane and floods 

and is already in another hurricane season, the need

for financial assistance is increased.

Helping Hands for the Poor Inc- a non-profit 

corporation, was established in USA to support the 

St. Patrick’s Foundation in Jamaica

St. Patrick’s Foundation operates the following:

·         The St. Patrick’s Human Resource Centre (Waterhouse)

·         The St. Margaret’s Human Resource Centre (Olympic Gardens)

·         The St. Monica’s Home for the abandoned elderly (White Marl)

·         The Riverton City Human Resource Centre

·         Christ the Redeemer Human  Resource Centre (Seaview Gardens)

Specific services offered by the Foundation include:

♦ Personal human resource development

♦ Education (remedial, primary, secondary)

♦ Day care for the elderly

♦ Health clinics

♦ Skills training: Baking, sewing, tailoring & woodwork  

The Foundation has developed community outreach programs that include job placement (in one year about 500 inner-city youths were placed in jobs) and Focus Groups (seminars, workshops, discussion, groups on AIDS, family life, drug abuse, health and police community relationships).  An education fund was established to ensure quality education for the youths of the communities.  Through this Fund, school fees, lunch, transportation, and scholarships provided to qualifying students.

The Founder of St. Patrick's Foundation, The Rt. Rev. Monsignor Richard Albert, was born in Bronx, New York, USA. He recently celebrated 30 years in the ministry; twenty-eight of these years were spent in Jamaica.  Earlier in his ministry he was assigned to Stella Maris Catholic Church in Shortwood, St. Andrew.  Recently he was elevated to the position of Vicar of the Parish of St. Catherine.

With 3canal (T & T Rapso Group)

Thursday-Saturday: 8:00 PM & Sunday: 4:00PM

Trinidad & Tobago's groundbreaking rapso group, 3canal, and a collective of DC artists, bring you "the poetry of Calypso" and "the consciousness of Soca," with echoes of carnival rituals. In English, Spanish and Caribbean Creoles.
Caribeana Imperia is an exhilarating exploration of the power of the word in the rhythm of the word, utilizing archetypal forms of carnivalesque ritual, both carnal and spiritual.  Manwarren comments, "In this age of globalization, caught between outside influences and our own potential, between old stereotypes and what we may be, we reach outside of self to say, look we!

Caribeana Imperia (continues)

In this original musical production, 3canal will lead an unprecedented collective of artists from Trinidad & Tobago and Washington, DC in speaking through the rhythm and movement of the islands with rapso, described as the poetry of calypso with the consciousness of soca. With music as the unifying element, the show will weave together texts and storytelling in English, Spanish and Caribbean Creole, incorporating language into powerful projected images.

 
Billboard magazine says of 3canal: "[Its originality] has placed this group on a fast track to global pop stardom."
