Remember, support for all, each little local artist and Vendor not just those who feel all support is theirs because they feel they above the rest. It is for each to succeed not just a few. Culture is not just singers or drummers it is hat makers, rug weavers, chime makers folk artists, clothing designers, soap makers, food creators, every little thing that creates the whole that is singularly GRENADA.
Very true JenJen…
