Outstanding Mothers recognized by RHTY&SC cricket teams and DTV-8
Three exceptional mothers were honoured on Mother’s Day when the cricket teams of the Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports and DTV-8 hosted their 5th Annual Region 6 Mother of the Year Award Programme. Haimkumarie Basdeo of Canje was named the RHTYSC/DTV-8 Region 6 Mother of the Year while Beverley King of Alness Village and Jenny Ramoutar of No. 2 Village were named runners-up.
The event was organised by the Club’s Farfan & Mendes Under-15, Bakewell Under-17, Gizmos & Gadgets Under-21, Pepsi Under-19 and Metro Female teams in conjunction with DTV-8 of New Amsterdam.
Club Secretary/CEO Hilbert Foster at the presentation noted that the main aim of the programme was to identify and honour parents who are positive role models and who have also played a major role in the development of their children.
Foster expressed concern about the lack of family values and respect for authority among the young generation while urging the awardees to share their parenting skills with their peers. The Rose Hall Town Youth & Sports Club, Foster stated is blessed with disciplined and committed members because of their family background and would continue to invest in family related programmes.
Mother of the Year, Mrs. Basdeo praised the different cricket teams of the Club and DTV-8 for making her feel special. Motherhood, she stated is a God given privilege and discipline, patience and understanding were the virtues needed to be a good parent. All three mothers were presented with certificates among other prizes.
