The Friends of Trelawny Association (FOTA) was formally established in 2001 as a non-profit corporation in the state of New York, dedicated to the development of Trelawny, Jamaica.
The organisation is best known for the annual Trelawny Reunion picnic held in New York state, the first of which took place in 1979. This picnic brings thousands of Trelawny people who reside all over the world into one location each year.
The organisation is also actively engaged in assisting persons and organisations in Trelawny parish. Their latest presentation consisted of big bag kits comprising a book bag, pencils, sharpener, crayons.
The presentations in Clark’s Town were made by Rose-Ann Green and Norman Goburn. The other presentation at Wilson Run Primary in South Trelawny was made by locally based Frances Brown (Inspector of the Poor) on behalf of the organisation.
