The service on Monday morning is tradition, and is a solemn reminder of the man who fought for Turks and Caicos Islanders to play a larger role in the governance of the nation.James Alexander George Smith McCartney died in 1980 in a plane crash over New Jersey, USA as the first Chief Minister of the TCI.  McCartney, who was just 34 years old at the time of the crash, was into the fourth year of his tenure when he died; among his accomplishments was entering into a dramatic stand-off at the Junkanoo Club with the British which brought about a new constitution and more power to the Turks and Caicos people.  There is no word on who will be the speaker at this year’s ceremony, which is always punctuated by a wreath laying ceremony.Later on Monday, taxi drivers in Providenciales will hold their annual motorcade to honour JAGS.  It gets started at the down town ball park.center_img Related Items:last_img read more
