BY KERRI-ANNE RECKORD, Jamaica Vice Chargée de Presse , AND ISABELLA OVEREND, Caribbean/Atlantic Islands Chargée de Presse Provincial/Nassau Bailli CARIBBEAN/ATLANTIC ISLANDS CONFRÈRES were especially excited to hold a joint chapitre with Southeast confrères, as their last regional chapitre had been in 2013. The Jamaica Bailliage hosted the fabulous event in Ocho Rios from November 8-11, with members from Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the United States, and Great Britain coming together for the fun-filled weekend. The kick-off event at the Jamaica Inn was hosted by General Manager/Jamaica Maître Hôtelier Kyle Mais and his team. Known for its famous guests (Marilyn Monroe!), the hotel has appeared in many films, making the "Lights, Camera, Action"-themed event that much more fitting. In homage to Ian Fleming's larger- than-life character James Bond, the evening featured an Aston Martin, martinis, life-sized 007s, and Bond-film theme songs performed live. The next day found attendees at Stush in the Bush, nestled in the breathtaking St. Ann hills, for an amazing vegetarian luncheon hosted by co-owners Chef Lisa Binns and Christopher Binns. Bailli Délégué Harold Small presented a well-deserved Chaîne plate to the husband-and-wife team for their hospitality. At that evening's sunset beach party at the Couples San Souci resort, attend- ees were entertained by carnival-costumed dancers, aerial acrobats, and a steel drum band. A lavish buffet ran the gamut from roasted pig to scrumptious desserts while rum punch fueled the conga line, all thanks to General Manager/Jamaica Vice CARIBBEAN/ATLANTIC ISLANDS AND SOUTHEAST REGIONAL CHAPITRE PHOTOS BY CHRISTOPHER RECKORD, CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS, AND ISABELLA OVEREND SE confrères.
