OFFICIAL OPENING OF THE ARCHDEACON WILLIAM THOMPSON SOFTBALL FIELD
This softball field is indeed a public good that will serve many communities and sporting organizations well.
Having said that, we gather here to pay tribute to the life, legacy and work of a significant Bahamian son who dedicated his life to liberation and development through education, morality, religion and theology.
Further, as an avid sportsman, fan and visionary, Archdeacon William Thompson sought to influence and inspire generations of Bahamians through youth and sports development. In contributing to youth and sports development, visionary Bahamians like Archdeacon Thompson were laying the ground work for what we today call the orange economy.
