Heroes Day celebrations set for Monday

The honourees, men and women who helped put Cayman on the map as a premier travel destination, were selected from nominations submitted by their peers.

A moment of silence and laying of wreaths will pay tribute to our deceased nation builders.

“When you think of it, in terms of Cayman’s modern development, tourism was the first underpinning. Tourism existed long before the financial services industry and so it is fitting really they we honour our pioneers who have contributed so much to tourism over the years,” said Councillor for Health and Culture Roy McTaggart.

The event starts at 8:30 a.m. Monday in Heroes Square. After the ceremony there will be a tourism display in the town hall.

The heroes day celebrations will necessitate a few road closures over the weekend, starting at 6 p.m. tonight through 9 p.m. Monday. The roads will re-open temporarily from Friday midnight to noon on Saturday.
