We are encouraging our alumni to wear their Kente stoles to all USC activities celebrating the official opening of our new local campus here in Barbados this weekend. This is a great opportunity to show our pridefulness and love for our alma mater, as well as our affirmation of our Afro-centric heritage and solidarity with our brothers and sisters in West Africa currently suffering and dying in the Ebola epidemic. These activities include the Sabbath Morning Services at the King Street, Ephesus, Jackson, Checker Hall and Chance Hall SDA Churches where USC leaders from the Main Campus in Trinidad will be presenting, the Supercharged USC Rally at the Cane Vale SDA Church in the afternoon, and the Ribbon-Cutting on Sunday morning. If you don't have or cannot find your graduation Kente stole, we still have a few of our specially branded USC Barbados Alumni Chapter Kente stoles @ BDS 75 - first-come/first-served - available at the library of the Barbados SDA Secondary School. Pick them up no later than noon, Friday, October 24, 2014.

Unearthed above is a clipping from the March 1950 edition of the Inter-American Division Messenger. It celebrates the recent completion of what was then the mission (now conference) office on the corner of Collymore Rock and Brittons Cross Road, and the Advent Avenue Church in the Bank Hall area. Both buildings, pictured below, are currently in a state of transition. The old conference office ~ http://goo.gl/maps/k2ad8 has appeared somewhat abandoned for a number of years since the Maranatha Church moved out to the new church which they are building on Forde's Road in the Clapham area ~ http://goo.gl/maps/VIyXj, however, the old building was actually earmarked by the last conference administration for conversion into office and retail space for the Adventist Book Center and Adventist Community Services. The Advent Avenue Church is in the midst of a massive church building project adjacent to the now "old" church building ~ http://goo.gl/maps/B73CX.
