Men's Fun Day Set for Jan. 27

Jan. 12, 2008 — A Men's Fun Day on the Cay, open to the public, will take place Jan. 27 on Protestant Cay, sponsored by the Parent Advisory Committee of the St. Croix Career and Technical Education Center.
"After the first workshop, we vowed to never end the program," said Bert Benjamin, one of the coordinators.
The mentoring day for men and boys begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 6 p.m. at the Hotel on the Cay. It starts with a short ferry ride in Christiansted Harbor. Reduced rates will be offered for activities like jet skiing, kayaking and for food and beverages. Brunch will be served from 10 to 3 p.m.
According to Benjamin, there will be swimming, snorkeling, domino tournaments, other games and door prizes. Boys must be 10 years or older, if they require a surrogate father.
The December workshop drew more than 90 people and Alpha Phi Alpha, V.I. PUSH (Parents Uniting Schools and Homes), the V.I. Police Department, Lutheran Social Services, V.I. Village Partners in Recovery and the V.I. National Guard. Some of those groups are expected to participate again.
Organizers are expecting to have at least 100 participants. "Fun days like this are to show the parents how to get involved," Benjamin said.
