The spouses visited the Ranfurly Home for Children, Mackey Street where they met and interacted with children of the home. Mrs. Holding-Hall said she enjoyed Monday’s visit to the children’s home.
“I found the kids were so alert. All of them have ideals, hopes and aspirations. They have their plans as to what they want to be when they grow up and I was very impressed with that,” she said.
On Tuesday, the spouses were taken on a tour of the College of The Bahamas and paid a courtesy call on Janyne Hodder, COB’s President. The last stop on Tuesday’s itinerary was a visit to Kerzner International, Paradise Island.
