GARFIELD, THOMAS TO RECEIVE AWARDS AT GALA

Feb. 29, 2004 – The outstanding career achievements of two prominent Virgin Islanders will be highlighted at an awards extravaganza to be held Saturday, March 13, by the Virgin Islanders For Responsive Government organization.
During the formal event at Marriott's Frenchman's Reef and Morningstar Beach Resort, Winifred Garfield, executive director of the V.I. Board of Nurse Licensure will be presented with the first June A. Adams Award for Public Health, which the organization created to honor health-care providers who have made outstanding achievements in the area of public health, a release said.
Edward Thomas, West Indian Co. Limited president and chief executive officer, will receive the William C. Dowling Business Achievement Award, which was created in 2003 to honor the late community and business leader, who posthumously received the V.I. Medal of Honor from the V.I. Legislature.
Both awards are planned to be presented annually, continuing the organization's practice of recognizing residents who have distinguished themselves in various fields of service. The Alexander A. Farrelly Public Service Award was created in 2002 and bestowed on Gov. Charles W. Turnbull and, in 2003, on Dr. Alfred O. Heath.
Tickets for the gala are $100 each and are available at First Choice Boutique at Market Square, Nisky Pharmacy, Phil's Paradise and Soft Touch Boutique at Port of Sale Mall, and V.I. Bridal and Tuxedo Center in Tutu Park Mall. For additional information call June Adams at 777-3643 or gala chair Loretta Lloyd at 777-6411.
