Diaspora - The Launch of the JD - CF E-mail

Diaspora - The Launch of the JD - CF 
 
The Launch of the newly formed Jamaican Diaspora - Canadian Foundation  (JD-CF) took place at the Club Paradise in Etobicoke on December 2, 2005, in the presence of some 250 invited guests.
 


The organization announced that its mandate is to cause Jamaicans  to come together, for the purpose of enhancing Jamaica in the areas of national security, business, education and social development, and to impact positively the interests of Jamaica and Jamaicans everywhere.

Special VIP guests at the launch included the Hon. Alvin Curling, speaker of the House in Ontario, His Excellency Carl Marshall, High Commissioner to Canada, His Excellency Claudio Vale, Canadian High Commissioner to Jamaica, Miss Vivia Betton, Jamaican Consul General to Ontario, and Bishop Peter Morgan from Jamaica.

Philip Mascol, JD-CF President, and Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, Vice President, were hosts of the event. They explained that at the first ever Diaspora Conference held in Jamaica earlier this year, the Jamaican government, and as well as a group of companies within Jamaica's business sector, recommended that an international Advisory Board be created to liaise with the island on matters relevant to enhancing the betterment of the island.

Two Canadian representatives were selected at the conference to represent Canada on this International Advisory Board, two from the United Kingdom, and three from the USA. The Board will meet with the Jamaican government and business officials twice per year in Jamaica. Each country was asked to form its own group or board. Canada has officially registered the JD-CF as a non-profit organization.  An 11 person Canadian board has been selected, of which our own Neil Dalhouse has been appointed Board Secretary.

The president explained to the audience that a JD-CF website was being developed, a section of which was designed to contain a data base of professional Jamaicans living in Canada. This JD-CF website will be launched in about 3 weeks.

The JD-CF also announced that all Jamaicans, and people of Jamaican heritage are automatically deemed members of the JD-CF .

The organization has also created a paid up membership program to help build a database of Jamaican people within the Canadian Diaspora. Membership fees will fund the development of programs aimed at aiding Jamaica. Paid up Diaspora members will also receive substantial discounts from companies that offer goods and services in Jamaica. The JD-CF  is currently in negotiations with Jamaican hotels, car rental agencies, clothing stores, etc, to offer these discounts. Mascol explained that this membership program will not only be a benefit to paid up members, but will be a great support to the "BUY JAMAICAN" slogan.


Information on these discounts will be published
on the JD-CF 's website. A membership pin and card will be given to all paid up members. Membership fees will be $50 per single person, and $75 per family. Corporate membership will also be made available, and further details on membership will be listed on the JD-CF web site.

Floridian Georgians Show hospitality.

From October 7-10, Florida President Dennis Barnett and his energetic executive were out in force to show Toronto President Robbie Vernon and Sports Director Milton Hart and their visiting soccer players just how the Florida boys entertain. 


The October weather was just fine and the welcoming party at the beautiful home of Dennis Chung set the agenda for a most memorable visit.

The much hyped match up on Saturday October 9th was a closely contested game with the Florida Georgians clipping the Ontario team  3-2 victory to capture the coveted Deltana trophy donated by Phillip Wong. 

The picnic and food fest after the game with the Florida Georgians and their families set the tone for a much sought after return visit and a tour by the Florida soccer team to Toronto. 

 

 

This memorable October visit will be showcased in our upcoming newsletter.
We capture here some of the highlights and too some Georgians who came out of the woodwork.

Bet you haven’t seen many of them in years

St.G.C Basketballers on Canadian Tour.

Six members of the successful StG.C basketball team made the Jamaica youth squad on a tour of Canada in Dec 2004. They were Cleon Morrison, Dane Massey, Shane Williams, Kareen Thomas, St.Aublyn Kidd and Michael Rogers.


StG.C. coach Clifford Brown was also appointed coach of the Jamaica under 15 squad, which contained five StG.C. players.


The Jamaica squad engaged various high schools and club teams in a series of friendly matches. The U17 team with St.G.C. netballer Michael Rogers played six matches and won four. The under 15 team played five matches, winning three, with victories against Oakwood Collegiate and Brampton.
 


This is all part of a development programme for the young Jamaican players, many of whom, including Georgian Michael Rogers, have received scholarships to attend North American universities.


The Ontario old boys were out in support at many of the games and assisted in providing transport and entertainment for the visiting Georgians. Coach Clifford Brown and players were entertained at the home of President Robbie Vernon, who presented them with complimentary copies of the Toronto “Good & True” June 2004 issue. They were surprised and delighted to see their team featuring in this overseas paper.

 
Ray Chang hosted a special Christmas party at his home for the executives and their spouses and our sponsored St. Georges youth soccer club, which had come off a very successful season. Coach Brown and the touring STGC basketball team players were special guests at this event.

Kudos to Neil Dalhouse, Michael Buski Charley, Shaun Wilson, Chris Chin, John Flynn and new member Richard Saunders, who were towers of support during the tour. Good things are happening at STGC- look out for these names in basketball circles!
