The United National Congress sends it condolences and deepest sympathies to the family of Patrick Arnold, who passed away on Tuesday night.
Patrick Arnold was most well-known as President of Pan Trinbago (1996-2009), but he also served as Mt. St. George Deputy director, a past Senator, and was a highly regarded Pan Tuner.
Under the Basdeo Panday Administration, PanTrinbago – under the Presidency of Mr. Arnold — received the deed to lands at Trincity to provide a National home for Pan.
Under the Kamla Persad-Bissessar Administration, Mr. Arnold served as Chairman of the National Carnival Commission.
Patrick Arnold was an ambassador of the culture of Trinidad and Tobago, nationally and internationally. He had a lasting effect on the organisation and management of the steelpan movement. May he rest in eternal peace.
