Generation X Masquerader Apology





October 9, 2012


To our Masqueraders,

For the past twelve years Generation X has strived to give our Masqueraders the best experience possible while participating in the Miami-Broward Carnival.  From the third year of existence our band has been the largest participant in Carnival, growing each year to our current high of 1,500 masqueraders in 2012. Never in our history have we experienced the challenges we encountered this year.

We pride ourselves on great customer service and giving the best value for money, but this year we fell short in a few areas and we would like to extend our sincerest, most heartfelt apologies.  We want to assure those that were affected adversely that they will be contacted personally and the issue will be resolved. Please send us an e-mail to generation@bellsouth.net and we will investigate and take the appropriate action to ensure your satisfaction; but ask for your patience in arriving at a resolution.

The Gen X family will be stepping back and taking a long, hard look at all aspects of our band with an eye towards a complete overhaul of procedures and an evaluation of where we go from here.  We thank you for choosing to play mas with us this year and wish to apologize once again for any adverse experience that may have affected you.  We also thank you for joining us on the road and leading us to honors as Generation X was again named Band of the Year and Best Music on the Road.

Sincerely,

Generation X Committee 

The Noble Douglas Lilliput Foundation For The Arts To Carry On The Legacy of Arts Icon, Noble Douglas




Trinidad and Tobago’s leading lady of children’s theatre, Noble Douglas, ushers in a new era in her life as a cultural revolutionary with the launch of the non-profit organisation, the Noble Douglas Lilliput Foundation for the Arts (NDLFA). On Friday October 19, 2012, the co-founder of the country’s foremost children’s theatre company, Lilliput Children’s Theatre, and the founder of premier contemporary modern dance company, the Noble Douglas Dance Company Inc. (NDDCI) will introduce her latest initiative at a reception at Queen’s Hall.

The NDLFA is an entity committed to supporting and strengthening the work of the Lilliput Children’s Theatre and NDDCI, as resilient, proactive, forward-thinking institutions committed to the “Ideals and Principles of Discipline, Hard Work, Love and Respect for the Craft, Forms and Traditions of Performance, and the Creative Process.” The foundation will serve as a vehicle to continue the creative work of both Lilliput and the NDDCI thereby ensuring their long-term viability while concretising the attainments and achievements of two of Trinidad and Tobago’s most vibrant performing arts institutions.

For more than half a century, Douglas has stood strong with an unyielding commitment to her vision to use the performing arts as a medium to stimulate young people’s creative energy and to build character, self-confidence and self-esteem. She has shone as an icon of the arts in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean region. A recipient of the nation’s second highest award, the Hummingbird Medal – Gold, Douglas’s work has been celebrated by many. Most recently, the Guardian Media group named her as one of the country’s 50 Most Influential People.

The NDLFA board of directors, Dennise Demming (Chairperson), Noble Douglas (Founder/Artistic Director), Denise Dickson-Cunningham (Secretary), Lenore Harris (Treasurer), Margaret WalcottLiza MillerWendell ManwarrenZakiya Smart and Merylle Mahabir, are inspired and committed to carry on Douglas’s legacy. The board will be supported in their work by patrons, former First Lady and social activist, Zalayhar Hassanali; intellectual, Diana Mahabir-Wyatt; and Lilliput parent, Sian Aboud.

The NDLFA launch will feature a keynote address by Mahabir-Wyatt and live performances by Lilliput Children’s Theatre and an excerpt from NDDCI’s 2012 dance season, Transition. Dance enthusiasts and NDDCI’s followers can look forward to the opening of Transition, on Saturday October 20, 2012 at Queen’s Hall. Tickets are priced at $150.00 and are available now at Crosby’s Music Centre; and from October 15, 2012, at Queen’s Hall box office. Part of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the NDLFA’s Lilliputian For Life Fund. For more information, visit the NDDCI Facebook page atwww.facebook.com/nddci or email info@estuaryPR.com or call (868) 367-5295.
