It was a beautiful affair at the Cross Roads branch of COK Sodality Co-operative Credit Union last Friday as staff members - including the company's CEO, Ambassador Aloun Ndombet Assamba - came out dressed in African couture to celebrate Black History Month, Reggae Month and Jamaica Day.

Noting that, "as a people we have a rich heritage that is worth celebrating", the company explained that its Human Resource and Learning Department, headed by Marsha Cole-Hart, was behind the initiative to invite staff to go to work dressed in their "reggae colours, Jamaican colours or dashiki " to celebrate.



While staff across all branches went to work in their colours, the Cross Roads branch, which won Branch of The Year in 2017, stood out, the company said.

The branch fused the Reggae Month celebration with live entertainment from 'Michie the Rasta Man'. Julius William aka Bobo was also in branch with his locally-made hand crafted items on sale.
