Traditional rag rugs, hand-made bags, hats, and drawings were just a few of the beautiful arts and craft items that Sunrise clients Finita Ebanks, Tessa Terry, Elena Ow-Lam, and Alia Brown presented for sale during yesterday’s staging of the 53rd Annual Agricultural Show.

SRC Director Kimberly Voaden was quite thrilled with her team’s participation in the Agricultural Show for the first time in recent years.

“We are delighted that the Sunrise Adult Training Centre clients and staff were able to take part in this year’s Agricultural Show. Experiences such as these benefit our clients by facilitating community inclusion, and this opportunity is a true highlight – our clients look forward to major events like the Agricultural Show every year! at a major event. Participating at the Show through running our stall also provides clients with essential life skills practice in money management and communication skills. Learning is best reinforced when it’s embedded in a meaningful and purposeful activity, and today is a great chance for that to happen, along with a whole lot of fun!”

Ms. Voaden further described her team’s participation as a way to increase public awareness about the SRC, its programs, and the skills and talents of its clients.

Previously, SRC clients have been able to sell their hand-made crafts items at smaller events such as Farmers and Artisans Markets in Camana Bay, West Bay Farmer’s Market, and Eco Fairs. During the past year, items have been sold through local shops such as the Book Nook, as well as the West Bay and Savannah locations of the Cayman Pharmacy Group. Presently, the clients are busy making crafts and gifts for sale at SRC’s upcoming annual concert in June 2020. Anyone interested in purchasing craft items, or ordering hand-made rag rugs are encouraged to call SRC at 949-3330.
