Member of Wings Youth Track & Field Committee, Mr. Romaine Potter presents Appreciation Certificate to Ms. Dornalyn Beazer, Marketing Manager of State Insurance Corporation.
At a meeting on Thursday, May 13, the WYT &F Committee looked at some of the problems and hiccups that affected the program. It was conceded that a lack of sponsorship funds resulted in a shortage of some important services, example, food and refreshment for local & overseas officials and athletes, limited amount of tents for medical personnel, athletes and spectators. However, where funds were inadequate, voluntary assistance helped to produced a creditable Event.
