Dear Friends and Residents of Abaco;
I don’t know about you, but I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism has announced that fully vaccinated travelers visiting the Bahamas no longer require coronavirus testing, making it much easier to travel to and from the Bahamas – great news for Abaco and the travel industry in the Bahamas. According to Our World in Data, 36,000 doses of the COVID vaccine have been administered in The Bahamas as of May 9th. A limited amount of vaccines were distributed in April in Abaco to the clinics in Marsh Harbour, Foxtown, Cooperstown, Green Turtle, Man-O-War, HopeTown, Sandy Point, and Moore’s Island. It looks like we are on our way back to normal, or at least the new normal.
A few newsworthy items in and around Treasure Cay:
– The Treasure Cay Airport is being torn down as we await an announcement from the government on rebuilding plans.
– The Prime Minister has approve the proposed repairs to the sewer lift stations that service the HOAs in Treasure Cay.
– The TC Water Storage Tank is nearly complete which will provide improved water pressure for homeowners.
In Abaco Strong News:
– We have resumed our home repair program for the Bahamian residents of Treasure Cay Township, and currently have one home completed and four homes under construction.
– Abaco Strong is working with an amazing group of coaches, parents, and volunteers that are working hard to provide a healthy outlet to the children of Abaco that have lost so much to Hurricane Dorian and the COVID 19 pandemic. I hope you will consider supporting our Abaco Youth Baseball Fundraiser. It is programs such as this that strengthen the community and help to provide our children a better future. – Thanks to a group of young Bahamians who founded The Sustainable Lifestyle, and to The Ministry of The Environment Forestry Unit, we just received 110 trees, the first of four shipments that will be planted in some of the public areas in Treasure Cay as part of The Bahamas 100,000 tree planting initiative.
Clearly we have more work to do, but I like to think we are in a much better place than we were a year ago. Thank you as always for your interest and for your support of our rebuilding efforts in Abaco.
Stay Abaco Strong,
