Governor Anwar Choudhury meets Olive Miller at the Pines Retirement Home

(CNS Local Life): During his familiarizing tour of the Cayman Islands, Governor Anwar Choudhury visited the Pines Retirement Home last Friday, where he met the home’s first manager and current resident, Olive Miller OBE, who showed him a picture of her with Queen Elizabeth II at the official opening of the Pines and gave him a signed copy of her latest poetry book, Cayman Rhyme Time with Ms Olive, for his daughters. Miller also explained the significance of the Pines’ Wall of History, which exhibited memorabilia charting highlights since the home was opened in 1983.

Accompanying the governor on the tour of the 48-bed facility were Pines manager Lynda Mitchell and board member Pamela Webster.

According to a GIS report of the visit, the new governor was “impressed by the Pines’ modern and immaculate interior and the level to which staff were attentive to the residents’ needs”. Choudhury asked Mitchell several questions such as the Pines’ annual operating budget and the flexibility of its hurricane preparedness plan.
