On December 11th, Camp  BAMIVOCA located off Marshall Road, was filled with laughter and excitement as members of the Adventist Health Professionals Association (AHPA) and the Health Ministries Department gathered there for their annual Year End Social.

The main feature for this year's celebration was the recognition of past presidents of the AHPA. Among them were Dr. Joseph Evans, the founding president who served from 2001 – 2007; Dr. Alvira Higgs (2007 – 2009); Dr. John Carter (2009 – 2013); Dr. Monique Mitchell (2013 – 2015); Serkeitha Meadows (2015 – 2017); Shandera Smith (2017 – 2019); Rose Cooper (2019 – 2021); and Shandera Smith once more for the years 2021 – 2023. They were all awarded with plaques and gifts which were presented by South Bahamas Conference President, Pastor Kenny Deveaux, and former Health Ministries Director, Nathelyn LaCroix.

The day was spent with the members engaging with each other, participating in health quizzes and games, and activities, and enjoying a delicious meal courtesy of Healthy Lifestyle Center and Deli. It was reported to be a festive time and a wonderful way to end the year.
