Statement from the Office of the Chairman
Progressive Liberal Party
On The Passing Of Patricia Bazard
For Immediate Release
25 December 2017
The PLP is saddened this Christmas Day having learned of the passing of Patricia Bazard who is a cultural icon in our country. She was a team with the late Clement Bethel in establishing the formal thrust for public policy in culture in The Bahamas.
She herself was an actor, a story teller, a song bird, a chorister. We have lost an exemplary talent in her passing.
Perhaps her most enduring contribution will go down as her directing and being the driving force behind the National Children’s Choir. In that happy meeting up there, she joins the pantheon of those gone on before the late Clement Bethel, the late Winston Saunders and the late Cleophas Adderley.
On behalf of the Leader of the PLP Philip Davis and all colleagues, I extend condolences from the PLP to the family of the late Patricia Bazard including our former candidate her daughter in law Cheryl and her husband and children.
May she rest in peace.
