TheBahamasWeekly.com is here to serve the community of The Bahamas. It is our aim to provide positive content. We intend to depict the better-side of life in The Bahamas, and share how Bahamians are indeed people helping people. We provide a venue for Bahamians to feel connected to one another no matter what island of this archipelago they live on, or even if they now live abroad.
