Ezzard Miller, Ministers Roy McTaggart, Joseph Hew, Julianna O’Connor Connolly and Dwayne Seymour as well as Councillors Austin Harris, David Wight, Barbara Connolly and Captain Eugene Ebanks.

During the dinner the Premier made short remarks in which he spoke about the history of the Cayman/Jamaica relationship and significance of celebrating that interwoven history.
