Negril Chamber of Commerce - Press Release

Ambassador Courtney Walsh, former international cricketer, remains close to the game he loves. Walsh leads a series of island-wide cricket clinics with his hand-picked team of talented coaches.

During a visit to Negril to conduct a weekend cricket clinic for 28 youngsters at Allan Rae oval in Westmoreland on Saturday July 14 and Sunday July 15, 2007, the Negril Chamber of Commerce seized the opportunity to honor this great legend at an award reception.
The reception was planned by Grace Lee, president of the Negril Chamber of Commerce and held on Saturday, July 14, 2007 at Negril Escape Resort & Spa.

With the completion on the final Montego Bay clinic held July 21 - 22, 2007, Walsh’s long-time vision to assist young people to develop their sports ability, to represent Jamaica and to engage in something constructive, through learning from legendary role models, have been realized. Supreme Venture sponsored the weekend camps, while Victoria Mutual Building Society (VMBS) sponsored the Weekday camps Monday to Fridays for three weeks. Week day camps feature hygiene, health and a full programme of instruction.

Leading up to Miss Lee’s remarks, Mr. Theo Chambers, President, brought greetings on behalf of the Hanover Chamber of Commerce and Wayne Cummings, President, on behalf of the Jamaica Hotel Tourist Association.

During her presentation Ms. Lee made a strong appeal for the nation to place stronger emphasis on protecting the youth and in developing opportunities to enrich their lives.

She said the children who are our future are imperiled based on her observations of their behavior, which goes far beyond their years. Children have in some cases become susceptibility to human trafficking caused by lack of protection, guidance and many times love. She asked where is the protection and love? Where are the fathers? And where is the village that is to protect the children?
The Chamber President asked for help from all sectors in stating “I am imploring you to do more for our children, increasing positive entertainment, investing in more things geared towards children, and using community centers to their full potential.”

On behalf of the Negril Chamber of Commerce and in recognition of the work that Ambassador Walsh has done with the children of the nation, Ms. Lee awarded Ambassador Walsh with a framed membership certificate, a copy of Negril Chamber’s official visitor Guide and a membership card.

Adding to the elegant evening reception, a photo montage presented a silent witness of the great moments in Ambassador Walsh’s career.

Miss Lee promised to recognize other notable heroes during her tenure as President of the Chamber. The Negril Chamber of Commerce meets every second Tuesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. Please call the office at 957-4067 for more details.
