News from the IPA in Trinidad and Tobago: An active Games Night accompanied by Trini-style Fish Broth

25 Aug 2021


IPA Trinidad and Tobago, foreign associate region 101 of IPA USA, was pleased to offer a games night on Saturday 20 March 2021, held at the Municipal Police Academy from 3:00 - 9:00 p.m., prior to the current second covid-19 wave. As you can see from the photo, this event proved highly popular, and attracted forty-two (42) members, who jumped at the opportunity to socialise following the restrictions imposed during the first wave of the pandemic in our country.

Our members enjoyed participating in musical chairs, a line dance and different board games, including Jenga, which was the most popular game of the evening.

While drinks and appetisers were supplied, a few members chose to cook fish broth, a local soup loaded with vegetables, and flavoured with herbs and thick slices of marinated fish on site, a delicacy which won the hearts of everyone present.

As was to be expected, this very delicious soup did not last very long. Absolutely no left-over or take-away! The event was very successful and not only met, but by far exceeded our intentions, which was building friendships through physical interaction.

To give you a real taste of Trinidad and Tobago, and a chance to share the atmosphere of the evening enjoyed by our members, please see an easy-to-follow recipe for the fish broth.
