Fun in the Son set for Portmore - Acting Mayor says event is 'timely'

Acting Mayor of Portmore, Leon Thomas.

The hosting of the Best Dressed Fun in the Son on Saturday, July 12 at the 13-acre Portmore Mall Park has been described as 'timely' by the Acting Mayor of the Portmore Municipality, Councillor Leon Thomas.

"At this time, Portmore needs this kind of Christian outreach, which can help to re-establish values among our people and solidify our faith in God," he said.

He also noted that the economy of Portmore should be boosted by the one-day activity, which at the last staging in 2012 had over 80,000 persons in attendance at the National Heroes' Park, downtown Kingston. In particular, he said the nearby Portmore Mall should benefit from the overall promotion of the Gospel Festival, as a buzz about the event was building through word of mouth.

"The people of Portmore are honoured and pleased to be hosting such a great event that will provide wholesome family entertainment and give our young people a chance to be associated with something positive and life-changing", he said.

The Acting Mayor said during the 12th staging of the free-to-the-public Gospel Festival, he anticipated that the Municipality would be highlighted in a positive way, including the fact that the majority of residents are ambitious and hardworking.

"At the end of the day, I also hope that God will continue to favour us here in this Municipality," Councillor Thomas said.

The Gospel Festival is sponsored by the Jamaica Broilers Group - through its Best Dressed Chicken brand - in keeping with their ongoing commitment to assist with the spiritual uplift and transformation of lives within the nation.
