Two popular St. Croix chefs will join the Virgin Islands National Guard (VING) and other community leaders to lend-a-hand at one of the points of distribution established to provide basic commodities after both Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.
The executive chefs are Chef Scott of The Palms at Pelican Cove and Chef Ron Duprat of the Renaissance Carambola Beach Resort. They will be at the Juanita Gardine School point of distribution at noon on Thursday, September 28. They both feel it is important to be a part of causes and charities in their local communities.
Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
With a population of only around 100,000, the U.S. Virgin islands has had a relatively successful history of track and field. Founded in 1963, as one of the founding members of the Virgin Islands Olympic Committee, the Virgin Islands Track and Field Federation (VITFF) has seen many of its young stars leave the territory because there were no modern facilities and limited opportunity for international competition and travel to United States high schools and colleges to blossom.
Since 1999 the Virgin Islands Source – the U.S. Virgin Islands ONLY on-line only newspaper of general circulation – has been providing the community with up-to-the-minute, reliable, accurate, and FAIR news and information.
