Basseterre, St Kitts — A PEP group made up of St. Kitts-Nevis Association of persons with disabilities (SKNAPD) members that are learning computer graphics at the Mcknight Community Centre, last week Thursday held a surprise combined birthday party for their facilitator and counsellor.
Mr. Earle Clarke who dutifully volunteers as the counsellor to members of the group had his birthday on Wednesday November 26th, while Mr. Anthony Mills, the People Employment Programme (PEP) their facilitator for computer graphics had his birthday the following day, Thursday November 27th.
The Deputy Prime Minister, who could not make it, sent a fruit basket each for the honourees. He was represented by a high powered delegation from the East Basseterre branch of the St. Kitts Nevis Labour Party.
Minister of Health, the hon. Marcella Liburd, who travelled and therefore could not make it to the surprise party, sent a birthday cake which was delivered by Mr Delroy Prentice.
Ms Sharylle Richardson, on behalf of the team from East Basseterre presented a fruit basket from the hon. Deputy Prime Minister the hon. Dr Earl Asim Martin to Mr Clarke and in doing so, she talked highly of the unique virtues that distinguish Mr. Clarke.
In reply, Mr. Earle Clarke said that being disabled did not imply an end to life. Referring to them as the less abled, he praised the training PEP was offering the graphic designers as what they were doing could develop into a lucrative business of making cards for all occasions.
