Congraulations to the men responsible for the for-
mation of the Abaco Mena Club. The idea is excellent.
However, a certain phase of your constitution has the
odour of a week-old dead conch. And, man, that's what
you call "stink, stink." You are only eligible to join the
Abaco Mena Club through one's birthright. This I don't
like. I love the phrase, "for the welfare and future pro-
grees of Abaco and Abaconians". This has a sweet
scent . a reminder of the night blooming Jasmine that
grows so profusely here in Abaco. But, In order that
you do not defeat this purpose, include the many men,
who have, in the past, present, and I am certain, future,
proven beyond any doubt their loyalty and devotion to
the land of their adoption.
Face facts . there is gentlemen, a well known and
lovely doctor, who has lived here for fifty years . A
loyal and dedicated man. Many of us Abaco born Aba-
conians may not have enjoyed that privilege, had it not
been for this doctor's care and attention. I had heard
about this doctor before I had my first Gumalumee boat.
There is Dr. Kendrick, at Green Turtle Cay. Why, this
man, a few years ago, was honoured by Her Majesty,
Queen Elizabeth, for the many deeds he performed
for the welfare of Abaco.
These gentlemen are just two of the many non-
native Abaconians who live, love and will die at home
. . their home . Ahaco.
I consider myself a true Abaconlan, and I am assist-
ing in my own small way to build and develop Abaco,
proud indeed to share the honour with the late Capt.
Stephan Cliffe. and Mr. Colyn Rees as the pioneers of
the tourist industry commenced many years ago in the
Green Turtle Cay area. And I need not remind you that
neither Rees nor Cliffe "were native Abaconians. Rees
lives permanently in Abaco, Mr. President, in your
own home town. Cherokee Sound. Should you visit Abaco,
have a look at the cottage colony he developed and the
many acres of a heretofore barren land he turned into a
real thing of beauty. This could only have been achieved
by someone with his heart and soul dedicated to the fu-
ture prosperity of the land of his adoption.
Buy a copy of the "Out Island Doctor" by Dr. Evans
Cottman, available at all iewustands. The author of
this book is so much in love and so dedicated to the fu-
ture of Abaco that he built himself a little ol' castle here
... I assume he will be staying around for a while.
Please do not misunderstand me, officers and mem-
bers of the Ahaco Men's Club, I think this is the greatest
and personally, would love a membership in your organi-
zation. However, I do feel there are exceptions to all
rules, and the men I have mentioned, and there are many


HOPETOWN'8 UOGWT M XANS UC TO MANY
others who should be on your Founders list, or in some
way given a seat of honour in your club, which I know
will prosper and bring happiness to Abaco, Abaconians
and resident Abaconians. Mr. President, or better still.
my good friend. Rusty, from an Abaconlan whose navel
string is buried in Ilopetown, if you could make some
exception to your rules to suit this purpose, then I feel
you will have an O.K. Club that's O.K.
Footnote: This newspaper would like to exstd to
your organization a full complimentary page In our amt
issue, in order that you may give us Abaconians living
in Abaco some knowledge of your aims and functions.

A pipe, a peaceful sunny day in the Abacos, a bit of work for the hands. Scarcely a
lap of the water at beach-edge, the harbour quiet, even the palm fronds silent in their
lazy swaying to the slight breeze. A faint fragrance of conch chowder cooking wafts
its way from the settlement. This is Hopetown, one of the friendliest havens for sea-
farers in all the Bahamas. Many have discovered her charms; if you haven't why don't
you?
