ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The Virgin Islands Party (VIP) will celebrate its 47th Anniversary with a Gala event, on November 17, 2018, at the Save The Seed Energy Center.

According to Chairman, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1), it is an auspicious time to pay tribute to founders and stalwarts of the party for their dedication and contributions towards the existence of the VIP and the mobility of the Territory.

Honourees

This year’s VIP Member Honourees, are former Premier, Honourable Ralph T. O’Neal, former Virgin Islands (VI) First Lady, Reverend Edris O'Neal, the Late Honourable Prince Stoutt, Harold Smith and Leontine Lettsome.

According to Hon Fahie, in addition to honouring VIP stalwarts, this year's Gala will have a focus on those persons who continue to ‘Rise Up’ and meet the challenges and overcome the obstacles to leave a lasting impression that makes “this place we call home better”

As such, he announced that this year the VIP has decided to recognize and honour Kenrick K. J. Headly, Raul J. Sprauve, Karen Alexander, Sheann Penn and Ayana S. Hull, “as our Rising Stars Community Impactors.”

According to Hon Fahie, “they have given, they serve, they promote, they represent and on the 17th they will be honoured.”

      What I can say is that whether one likes Hon. Fahie or not, one must admire how he has weathered the polotical storm and rebuild the VIP into a strong political party once again. This shows real leadership.
