Cayman Brac Junior Achievers and their company Kelosity were well received at their first sale on 3 December at the Rotary Club of Cayman Brac’s annual tree lighting ceremony at Stake Bay.

Persons attending the event were excited about the lamps made from coconut shells and other local products, which Keylosity proudly displayed. The lamps proved popular for Christmas gifts, to the extent that Keylosity sold approximately 70 per cent of their stock on spot, according to Lead Advisor Alphanso Gayle. Individuals were also able to place orders for the lamps.

The sale at the tree lighting was the first in a series of sales to be conducted by the achievers. On Friday, 20 December they will host a sale for the teachers and students at the Layman Scott High School. The achievers will travel to Grand Cayman on Saturday, 21 December, where they will also sell their products. On their return to Cayman Brac, they will be at various locations throughout the island.

Speaking about the achievers and their sales efforts, Mr Gayle stated that their appearance on Cayman 27 on 6 December yielded positive results, as persons in Grand Cayman who saw the show placed orders for the product. The achievers are busy with production to fill these orders, which will be delivered this weekend, he noted.

“The achievers are very excited that they will be at Governors Square from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon this Saturday, 21 December and they will have their product on sale. They are hoping that the community will come out and support them, as the product is made in the Cayman Islands, is unique and an ideal gift for the holidays,” Mr Gayle said.
