Not only did the ‘Tabacakacaka ni Suvavou’ men’s choir attend the Methodist Church Conference with their bright blue designed shirts, they also purchased their shirts from Naboro Prison, Suva.

President of the men’s choir, Semisi Nacagilevu, said that they had been looking forward to the Methodist Church Conference.

“We wanted to attend this conference with a new look,” he said.

Their matching blue and red shirts had been bought from Naboro prison in aid of also supporting the yellow ribbon campaign which gives prisons a second chance.

“We all paid our uniforms for $25 each from Naboro Prison and we also wanted to support the inmates,” he said. He said that the choir had been rehearsing their numbers two months before the conference.

“We had been preparing together for this conference and we thank God for bringing us here.”

The Suvavou Men’s Choir had performed on Wednesday, August 16 and will perform again on August 17.

Heavy rain and wet conditions didn’t dampen the spirits of Wainikeli Choir members, who are first timers at the Methodist Church Conference.

Choir Leader, Joji King said that they were very happy to be present at this year’s conference.

“This is our first time at this year’s Methodist Church Conference;we have 35 members who are happy to be here,” he said.

The ladies and men of Wainikeli choir were neatly dressed in their green outfits which reflected their garden island of Fiji home, Taveuni.

“We are very thankful that Tides Reach Resort in Taveuni funded our outfit and boat fare”

The Choir was given a total of $3,800.00 which they used to budget their costs for their outfit and travel expenses.

“Our ladies had their dresses and Sulu’s custom made from La La’s Bargin Store here in Suva” He said.

He added, the men had their shirts and ties made from Vinus Enterprise in Taveuni.

“We feel very good being here with our new set of outfits and we have prepared for this conference very well.”  The Methodist Church Conference is expected to start next week, after the choir festival closes on August 19.
