New Governor waits tables at Caneel

The annual Sprauve School benefit brought out the finest
table manners in the territory’s high and mighty over the weekend.
Waiters for the 10th annual benefit dinner included Gov. John deJongh,
as well as several VI Senators, and 1970’s graduates of the school.  In
remarks, deJongh said, " "I now have the fortunate opportunity to make
sure that education in St. John reaches heights that it never has
reached before," deJongh said, the Virgin Islands Daily News reported.
A member of the gala’s planning committee said the evening’s event and
auctions raised $100,000 for the school.  The funds will be used to
purchase electronic white boards, the newspaper said.
