Dear Members and friends,
We are so humbly thankful for all of those that took the time to send donations, either supplies or monetary as well as all the messages. Our staff can’t even begin to thank all of the support that has been shown.
It has officially been almost 7 weeks since Hurricane Dorian made landfall in The Bahamas. Grand Bahama has managed to resurface and float back to slight normality. From West to East, communities have received an outpouring of donations from large to small non-profit organizations. Restaurants and businesses are open. Port Lucaya reopened on October 18th.
The Marlin and Coral buildings are open. We will have an opening date for the Ocean and the Flamingo Hotel shortly.
Currently, Grand Bahama Island is accessible by Balearia Fast Ferry from Fort Lauderdale or flights from Nassau; Grand Celebration has resumed their service from Port of Palm Beach.
We have not received an update as to the re-opening date for the Airport for international commercial flights.
Please check back on our website for updates as well as follow Omar on Facebook.
The BEST way to help the Bahamas is to continue to visit. We can’t wait to see you down here soon.
