The Grenada National Trust (GNT) is pleased to announce the publication of its first annual calendar. The 2019 calendar features amazing vintage images of St George’s, the capital, and also features information specific to the tri-island state such as the births and deaths of notable Grenadians including Uriah “Buzz” Butler and Sir Eric Gairy.
“The Trust exists to raise awareness of the history and heritage of Grenada so the production of the calendar with its historical dates and images from the early 1900s is a natural extension of that mandate while also acting as a fundraiser to allow us to pursue our goals,” said GNT President, Darryl Brathwaite. “To that end, we’ve ensured that this collectible calendar is priced at a very affordable $15 and we’re working on making sure it’s available at as many locations as possible.”
Currently, the 2019 Calendar can be purchased at Hi-Tech Printery, Duty Free Caribbean outlets and at the Grenada National Museum. More outlets should be available shortly and will include options on the sister islands of Carriacou and Petit Martinique.
The Grenada National Trust was formed in 1967 by an Act of Parliament to “protect Grenada’s cultural, architectural and natural heritage, and to preserve chattels of prehistoric, historic or artistic interest and to pursue the establishment of museums.”
The 1967 Act also gives the Trust responsibility for the listing of buildings and monuments of prehistoric, historic and architectural interest; the compilation of photographic and architectural record of the above; the preservation of chattels of prehistoric, historic or artistic interest and the establishment of museums; and making the public aware of the value and beauty of the territory’s heritage among other things.
