There is no question that the road to recovery has been filled with obstacles and potholes. As progress continues, albeit at a slower pace than we would like, COVID19 has reared its ugly head and forced closed borders, quarantine, and lock downs. In spite of so many difficulties, including food security, clean water, lack of electricity, and difficulty in getting supplies in and out of the country, just to name a few, the spirit of the people of Abaco cannot be dampened.
Demolition is virtually complete of the condos surrounding the marina as well as Treasure Cay Resort. Pineapple Point reconstruction is nearing completion. Bahamas Beach Club restoration continues to progress. Roof trusses to be delivered this week, and stucco surfaces being repaired, and painting of the exterior of the office and lobby building to begin next month, weather permitting. Beach Villas are close to having power restored. Poles and lines are up and transformers are due to arrive in a couple of weeks. A new x-ray machine has been donated to Corbett Medical Center by The Doctor John T McDonald Foundation. A new structurally sound hurricane shelter with 500 gallon water storage tanks is in place and The Treasure Cay Parsonage adjacent to The Community Center has been fully restored. It will be available for Medical Personnel and Clergy.
Three cheers for all the residents, community leaders, and volunteers who continue to put one foot in front of the other and wake up with a positive attitude every day! Together we are Abaco Strong!
