The State has filed a lawsuit against two soldiers seeking to recoup the $1.5 million which they allegedly stole from the Defence Force in a recent payroll scam.
The organising committee of Fete With The Saints, the St Mary’s College all-inclusive fete, is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the event lives up to its billing as “The Happiest Party in Town”.
A release from the organisers said the committee, headed by Roberto Ramirez, is paying attention to every detail as they strive to make the fete one of the most pleasurable for the 2014 Carnival season.
The fete is being called “The Happiest Party in Town” as the headline act is Machel Montano and the HD band and one of Montano’s big hits this year is Happiest Man Alive. Also joining Machel onstage are Patrice Roberts and Farmer Nappy.
Roy Cape All Stars featuring Blaxx, Kerwin Du Bois, Neil Iwer George and DJs Tweez and Scoobie are providing entertaiment.
As is now customary, Fete With The Saints will end “on de road”. This year, Wodbrook Playboyz will lead the CIC fete crowd on a jump up in the street to bring the evening to an end.
The organisers also said there will be a “pamper zone” for ladies so they can get their makeup refreshed by professionals throughout the night.
Fete With The Saints is also boasting a wide array of meals and finger foods as well as premium drinks all night. Additionally, a well-stocked “sober zone” will be available for patrons.
