ROSE HALL, St James — The SMG Montego Bay Convention Centre hosted over 80 children and employees from the SOS Children's Village Barrett Town for a Christmas luncheon at the centre last week Wednesday.

The children and staff were treated to a buffet lunch, gifts, entertainment and as a special treat, the children got the opportunity to handle the formalities by selecting one of their own to chair the programme and display their talent of singing, reciting poems and dancing.

Raye Anthony, village director for SOS Children's Village Barrett Town, expressed gratitude to the staff of the Montego Bay Convention Centre and spoke of the children's reaction.

“What you have done is truly unique and magnificent. For me and the children it is truly mind-blowing, when they walked into the Grand Ballroom and saw the setting and experienced the ambience, the reactions from them were just priceless. All I could hear is 'Wow'. I'm extremely grateful to the staff at the Montego Bay Convention Centre for hosting us and for putting out so much in terms of the preparation and meals,” said Anthony.
