(CNS Local Life):The National Trust’s Bodden Town District Committee is holding a Father’s Day barbecue Saturday, 15 June, that is free and open to the public. The event, taking place at the Mission House between 11am and 4pm, will include a Father’s Day greeting card craft area, face painting, bouncy castle and a vintage photo booth; in addition, a traditional barbecue station and swanky will be available for purchase.

Organisers are hoping to raise $25,000 from the event, which will be used to carry out necessary repairs to the Mission House boardwalk, which crosses the garden to the property’s freshwater pond that was once a source of water for the house’s early settlers and a habitat for water fowl and hickatees.

Jennifer Martinez, Mission House historic coordinator and Bodden Town resident, said about the event: “The National Trust Bodden Town District Committee is thrilled to support the upkeep of the boardwalk at the Mission House with such a fun family event. We welcome all fathers and their families to attend this hidden jewel in the heart of Bodden Town, and to enjoy some local food and be reminded of how far the Cayman Islands have come since the Mission House was first built in the 1700’s.”

The committee will also offer a selection of Father’s Day gifts for sale, with all proceeds helping to support the National Trust’s efforts to preserve historic properties and environmental sites across all three Cayman Islands.

    Only when the maintenance law is enforced should we actually publicly celebrate father’s day.
