Trini heads Caribbean group in US

Sunday, February 4 2007


TRINIDADIAN Eunice V Roberts was recently installed as the new president of the Caribbean and Floridian Association (CAFA) at a function in Kissimmee, Florida. She replaced Jamaican born Dr Casmore A Shaw.

Roberts, a highly qualified Nephrology nurse, and eight other members of the organisation, were installed by Gloria Rose-Eddy, a retired Trinidadian-born health care executive who lives in Florida. The installation ceremony, took place at the Solid Rock Church of God, 1904 North Michigan Avenue, in Kissimmee.

With a membership of associations from various islands of the Caribbean, CAFA has been in existence for 17 years. Its mandate, among other things, is to promote within the Caribbean community and other communities existing in Florida, the importance of cultural awareness, education, and participation in community affairs. Originally from Tragarete Road, St James, in Trinidad, Roberts migrated to London, England in the early 70s. In Great Britain, she obtained her early nursing education and later moved to New York; subsequently relocating in Florida in 1992.
