1st Bahamas Company of Boys’ Brigade’s 75th Anniversary Celebrations

Beginning on Saturday, June 16th, 2018 at 6:30 a.m., The 1st Bahamas Boys’ Brigade will be celebrating their 75th Anniversary. Their theme for the milestone is, “Still Fighting the Good Fight,” and the scripture is 1 Timothy 6: 12, “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses” (NIV).  For decades, the Boys’ Brigade has focused on their two pillars: religion and discipline – allowing them to transition into successful men. They have different companies throughout the Bahamas that can be found at several churches. 

The Boys’ Brigade chose to begin their celebration with a fun/run walk because physical activity is one of the brigade’s priorities.  The celebration will continue on Wednesday, June 20th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. with a Panel Discussion focusing on the topic: “Developing the Whole Man.” The night is dedicated to men of all ages. There will also be a Father/Son look-alike contest. Bring your son or your grandson to win a prize and to learn from the men of the Brigade. 

Join the Boys Brigade the next weekend on Friday,  June 20th, 2018 at 7 p.m. for a drill display and exhibition. To close off the celebration the Boys’ Brigade way, join them at their church service on Sunday, July 1st, 2018 at 3 p.m.

All events will take place at Grant’s Town Wesley Methodist Church and Hall on Chapel St.
