Like the Great American Poet, Maya Angelou, the Class of ’92 found that among other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver. It was this liberation that they felt on Saturday 30th March when the planning committee presented some laundry suppliers and toiletries to the Dominica Infirmary and mingled with the inmates there. According to the Assistant Director of the Dominica Infirmary, Mrs. Angela Pierre, who received the items on behalf of the institution, it is always heartwarming when members of the public show support to the infirmary, no matter how small their contributions may be. She also stated that the infirmary needs much more assistance from cooperate citizens as it is often a headache to be asking the same contributors over and over again for assist.Her desire is that many more businesses and groups will do like the Class of ’92 Committee and make a donation. She said that the infirmary is in need of two commercial washing machines right now, and she does not know how they are going to be purchased as most of the infirmary’s subvention from the government goes towards the payment of salaries.Taking on the elderly in a friendly domino match.Mr. Irvin Hamilton, the Chairman of the committee, resounded Class of 92’s expectation not only to merry themselves at its reunion but also to give back to the society and the school, which molded them and guided them into being what they are today. This small contribution, according to him, is the first of a number of donations that the Committee intends to make to a number of similar institutions during this, its 20th Anniversary, year.Mr. Hamilton called on cooperate citizens and all religious entities on the island to come to the aid of the Dominica Infirmary, which has been doing a great job in caring for the elderly, to help it in its quest to purchase the washing machines. He said, ‘as the godly nation we always ballyhoo ourselves to be, we need to attend to the call that if there is among you anyone in need, a member of your community in any of your towns within the land that the LORD your God has given you, do not be hard-hearted or tight-fisted toward your needy neighbor. You should rather open your hand, willingly lending enough to meet the need, whatever it may be.’Having a laugh with Celus, the longest stay-in inmate at the infirmary.Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. The love brought about by the kindness of Class of ’92 giving to the infirmary warms the heart of all the members of the planning committee present at the small ceremony and was further reiterated by meeting Celus, the longest stay-in inmate at the institution and two centenarians presently sheltered under the infirmary´s roof. The DGS Class of ’92 20th Anniversary Reunion is carded for October 28 – November 5, 2012. The week-long event aims to bring together school mates and teachers to reminisce on the memorable time spent at our alma mater and share our life experiences.

Henry reveals which striker he would most like to play with

first_imgThierry Henry has told talkSPORT new Liverpool striker Christian Benteke is the one Premier League frontman he would like to play with the most.Benteke signed joined the Reds for £32.5million from Aston Villa last month and was immediately handed the no.9 shirt before scoring a stunning goal on his debut in a friendly against Swindon Town.And the Arsenal legend believes the big Belgian’s playing style would compliment his own abilities better than any other forward in the league.He told Drivetime: “When someone asks me a question like that [who would you most like to play with] I think straight away, ‘can I play with him? Can he play with me?’“I could have played with Benteke because I could have played off him. He can hold up the ball then I could have wandered around him. He takes all the knocks and kicks and I’m on the side.“I think if he has an amazing season, Liverpool will be in the top four. It is a lot of pressure but that’s why they have paid the big money for him. “I think if he does have a big season, one of those seasons where everything you touch goes in, he will be very important.“He is a player that, right now when I look at the league, I would have liked to play with him.”Henry’s fellow Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp also emphasised how important he will be to the side defensively.The former Liverpool captain added: “Liverpool concede so many goals from set-pieces and corners.“Someone like him to have in your box while you are defending is important. He is one of the best headers of the ball in the league.“Liverpool have struggled because they’re not a big side and he will add so much, not only as an attacking point of view but also defensively.”last_img read more
