A Gold Medal kind of day!
Each year that we have lived here Renee has been in the Jamaican Cultural Development Commission competition. Art, dance, or her violin. The first year her art won an Award of Merit and the piece went on an island tour. It was on display in cities across the island and then at the end of the tour the pieces go up for sale. Her piece sold, much to my dismay, being new we didn't know the details, I would have purchased it!! On Thursday she was in the second round of her two violin pieces. Her music teacher at school accompanied her on the piano and she played two Jamaican pieces. At the end of the day she received a gold medal for her pieces. Renee said there were probably 50 participants and only 5 gold medals given. Big Day!
