Jamaica Community Center Celebration

More than 100 passengers and musicians visited the Rural Retreat Community Center in Claremont, Jamaica for a day of celebration on Jam Cruise 8 in early 2010. Nearly $25,000 worth of goods were donated including musical instruments to start a marching band, a commercial weed whacker to keep the soccer fields mowed, soccer uniforms and cleats for several teams, school supplies and back packs, laptop computers with wireless cards to start a community computer lab, tables and chairs to outfit the community center, and the list goes on. Our warmest heartfelt thanks to LEBO, who painted an enlivening mural for all to see on the wall of the Center; Toubab Krewe and special guests who played a set and jammed with the locals; Ice Cream Man for trekking into the hills to give away free ice cream to all the children; and last but not least, the Jam Cruise passengers who contributed along with all of the members of the community in Jamaica who made this day so beautiful!
