Good Bye September, Welcome October

As we say goodbye to September, we turn our heads to October and with arms wide open we say, “Welcome October!” excited as kids eager to see what’s in the goody bag. Well let’s burst it open shall we? First up, October is celebrated worldwide as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in St. Kitts & Nevis we are no exception. There are a number of groups actively involved in the awareness promotion and assist persons with this disease. Reach for Recovery SKB Breast Cancer Support Group, Essence of Hope, Pink Lily and St. Kitts and Nevis Breast Cancer Foundation. We look forward to your activities.

Secondly, October is also recognized as Financial Information Month throughout the region and is an initiative spearheaded by the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB). Each year in October, the ECCB and other partner institutions implement projects to educate communities about making good financial decisions.  This year the theme is L.E.A.D (Learn Empower Achieve Develop), among the number of events will be a Business Symposium and Innovation Forum on Thursday 8th October at the Sir Cecil Jacobs Auditorium. Additionally, there will be a sports meet on Saturday 10th October at the Lime Sporting Grounds. Talk about making finances fun, right?

Hello June!

ATTENTION: TIME FOR A POP QUIZ. Can anyone tell me what the month of June represents? Bitter bedridden people with allergies may say it’s the month pollen still insists on staying around. Students may say June represents the month they can finally unplug their alarm clocks, while parents claim it to be the month where they reinstall tracking devices into their teenagers’ phone. Sounds like reasonable answers, right? *Buzzer* WRONG. If these are your answers then, sorry (not sorry) you’re highly mistaken. In our federation, June represents us. It is OUR MONTH! Yes, you heard us right! June belongs to St. Kitts and Nevis!  We have taken full custody and we’re not letting go any time soon.

St. Kitts and Nevis is widely known for our Music Festival in June. However, some of you may be surprised to hear that it’s also the month for CPL T20, Nationals, Endless partying (and we really do mean endless), nonstop excitement and so much more!

Alright, alright. Simmer down now. Exciting as it might be, June is so much more than a month of events to us.

June goes beyond the list of activities available. June is THE MONTH to experience St. Kitts and Nevis. It’s as simple as that! It’s the month when nationals return home and we’re all one big happy family again. I mean, really… It’s no wonder why college students are so anxious to come back home and bring their buddies from abroad with them, just so they could witness and feel what our beautiful twin islands have to offer for themselves. June represents our people and the energy we have. It represents love, laughter, joy, and excitement. That in itself is what makes our activities in June such a big hit. Our lively spirit is the real experience, all the events are just a plus!
