Spokesperson Jonetta Ellis told SEARCHLIGHT that this year’s event was smaller in terms of the items on exhibition but the spirits were higher this year. Ellis said that the students will learn by observing the products from yesteryear and have more appreciation for the new technologies and put them to proper use. “I was amazed the first time I saw some of these items,” Ellis also said.

The Westwood Methodist School sits on a hill overlooking the tranquil Cumberland Bay which is a haven for yachting crowd. The school has a population of less than 100.(TY)
