PARAMOUNT TREAT 2013

The 11th staging of the Annual Christmas Treat for children of the Waltham Park and adjoining communities was a resounding success.  The event is held each year on the second Saturday in December.  It is hosted by Paramount Trading (Jamaica) Limited with support from several major sponsors as well as local authorities and community businesses.

The tradition, which was started in 2002, was born out of a desire to give back to the community in which we do business, and in which some team members live.  It has grown over the years and is now a keenly-anticipated calendar event.  The popularity can be measured in relation to the more than 500 children, along with their parents and guardians, who attended this year’s Treat.

A view of the crowd.

The stage concert was again a “big hit” and there were the usual rides and attractions, gifts for the children, and food.  In addition to the popularity of the rides, our sponsors who provided food were very generous and there was more than enough for everyone who attended.  As is often the case, the preparations did not always progress as planned and there were a few unnerving moments over the course of the day.  These difficulties served to strengthen our resolve to making sure that we achieved success.  We believe that we overcame the challenges very well and that this year’s treat has been the biggest and best to date.
