‘Out d’Box Awards’ to recognise those who help restore the community
Imagine Bermuda will this weekend honour individual and groups who worked to bring the community together at its July 2gather Family Fun Fest.
As part of festivities at Hamilton’s City Hall on Saturday, the organisation will recognise several residents with “Out d’Box Awards” for their work to restore the community in atypical ways.
A spokesman said that two groups — the Progressive Group and Bermuda is Love — will be honoured at the event.
In addition, individual awards will be presented to Reverend Kingsley Tweed, Leroy Looby, Michael Stovell and Dave Horan.
Reverend Tweed will be recognised for his work with the 1959 Theatre Boycott as well as the labour movement, while Mr Looby will be highlighted as one of a cadre of young people who bolstered the boycott.
Mr Stovell, of the Warwick Workmen's Club, and David Horan, principal of Warwick Academy, will be recognised for their work coming together to create a “bridge” across Middle Road in the form of a joint cricket programme.
The July 2gather Family Fun Fest will take place from 6pm to 8.30pm in Freedom Square in front of City Hall with performances by musical guests and Gombeys.
