Strengthening The Bonds Of Sisterhood


Katherine Rolle


Pakesia Parker Edgecombe

In celebration of their 54 years of service in The Bahamas, the Eta Psi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. is hosting a dynamic night of conversation centered around sisterhood.

Pakesia Parker Edgecombe, MP for West Grand Bahama and Bimini and member of Alpha Kappa Alpha, and Katherine Rolle, a young and inspiring motivational speaker, will lead the evening, providing provocative and engaging conversation for all attendees to join in.

Charter Day committee Chair, Phylicia Laramore said: “Our goal is to leave the conversation learning how to uplift each other, how to strengthen our bonds and how to build positive relationships with ourselves and with others. This kind of positive reinforcement is needed particularly in the wake of catastrophic hurricanes like Matthew and Irma, where we need to strengthen sisterly bonds across our chain of islands.”

President of Eta Psi Omega, Contanza Adderley Bourne is in full support of this effort, adding: “For 54 years Eta Psi Omega has been providing Service to All Mankind in The Bahamas and now we want to use this moment to really focus on the strength of women in our country and the relationships we have with each other. We want to talk about the ways we can help and support each other for the continued positive development of ourselves and our country.”

That the women of Eta Psi Omega have opened this event to the public is simply another way they are giving back. Ms Laramore said: “Working with my sisters in Eta Psi Omega has really enriched my life and we wanted all Bahamian women to have the opportunity to benefit from the same kind of conversation and interaction. Women are in so many ways the wealth and strength of our communities, that we forget to take time and work on ourselves. Creating this space for frank and honest conversation is simply another way that we could support Bahamian women.”

This event is open to the public. The cost is $40 and includes refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
