This is my island in the sun where my people have toiled since time begun I may sail on many a sea her shores will always be home to me Oh island in the sun built to me by my father's hand all my days I will sing in praise of your forest waters your shining sand As morning breaks the heaven on high I lift my heavy load to the sky sun comes down with a burning glow mingles my sweat with the earthly low Oh island in the sun built to me by my father's hand all my days I will sing in praise [ Find more Lyrics at www.mp3lyrics.org/2zD ] of your forest waters your shining sand Solo I see woman on bended knee cutting cane for her family I see man at the water-side casting nets at the surfing tide Oh island in the sun built to me by my father's hand all my days I will sing in praise of your forest waters your shining sand I hope the day will never come that I can't awake to the sound of drum never let me miss carnaval with calypso songs philosophical. Oh island in the sun built to me by my father's hand all my days I will sing in praise of your forest waters your shining sand

Betty and Georgette offered a
lovely setting to the
Air Bahama Crew Reunion
dinner at the Hotel Italia.
Betty gave all reunion
attendants a wine bottle
from her harvest at the
Caves Bernard Masard.
She had ordered an
Air Bahama label for
the bottles, stating
International Air Bahama
wine. What an exquisite
gift from an esquisite lady!
Georgette had edited a quality
presentation for each guest
presenting International Air
Bahama 1968 - 2008.
The printed version was topping
the table setting ornamented
by an orange colored ribbon.
On the wall Georgette had posted
photos of all reunion attendants
as well as many Air Bahama crew
through the years.
Each guest received from Georgette
a special 40 year anniversary cd.
Georgette had brought little scent
bags from Provence France, where
she stays as often as she can.
Each setting had one of those as
a gift also.
Thank you for all this from
all of us present at the
wonderful Air Bahama Crew dinner
at the Hotel Italia in Luxembourg!

airport from the airplane to the gates,

Ollie also brought the IAB manuals
and during the evening she made the
