5 Ways Love City Car Ferries, Inc. Cares for the Community
September 22, 2021 is the 1st day of fall. As the seasons change, we think of holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, times to slow down and focus on our loved ones. In the Caribbean, while we may not have intense changes in the seasons, we do experience cooler days and decrease day light, as we welcome the holidays.
Love City Car Ferries, Inc works tirelessly to offer service with a smile to our community. But besides that, for this upcoming season of caring, we would like to share with you 5 ways that we care for our community:
We believe that a community is stronger based on the health of individual families, the camaraderie of citizens, the accountability of government and the generosity of businesses. Thus, we will continue to do what we can in the business arena. It doesn't mean our answer will always be yes, but it does mean that community first is one of our guiding principles, as we continue to operate with "a heart for the people."
We at Love City Car Ferries, Inc would like to take the time to wish everyone a wonderful Labor Day weekend. You work hard and you deserve a day of rest. If you decide to head to St. John to the beach or head to St. Thomas for the sales, you can join us on the M/V Grand Vic. All cars and small trucks will be discounted to $40 round trip on Labor Day 2021. God bless!
*Discount does not apply to charge customers, reservations nor to larger vehicles.
Despite the challenges of 2020, we are thankful for the opportunity to serve you each and every day! May you enjoy the holidays and embrace the spirit of gratitude.
Thank you for the world so sweet,
Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. On Labor Day the M/V Grand Vic will begin at 8 AM from Cruz Bay and the last trip will be at 7:00 PM from Red Hook. Love City Car Ferries, Inc.'s corporate offices are closed beginning Friday, September 4th, 2020. We reopen on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Though the office is closed the ferries are still running. If you have an emergency please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a restful weekend and thanks for your patronage.
Every year in the month of February, America, United Kingdom, and Canada, celebrate the contributions of Blacks to their respective histories. For America, we’ve been celebrating Black History Month since 1976, as a result of the activism of Carter G. Woodson, Jesse Moreland and others. February was chosen as an acknowledgment of the birthdays of Abraham Lincoln and Fredrick Douglas. Throughout the remainder of the month we will share some little known facts about black history. Today, we decided to share a list of inventions by black inventors:
Memorial Day Facts
Memorial Day is the day that we memorialize those who bled and died while still in military service or as a result of wounds sustained during their time of service. It's distinct from Veteran's Day because Veteran's Day honors all Veterans living or dead, whether they served in war time or times of peace. At 3:00 pm local time, the national moment of remembrance, let us take a moment to thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice. We are forever grateful.
On December 24, 2018 and December 31, 2018, the office will be closed at 12 Noon. On Christmas Day and New Year's Day, the office will be closed entirely. The vessel will operate as per its usual holiday hours. See the following post with respect to vessel hours.
Have a wonderful holiday season: Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa. All the best to you and yours in the New Year!
May God continue to richly bless you in every area of your life, from the Love City Car Ferries, Inc family to yours:)
Llewellyn “Big Lew” Sewer was a big man not only in physical stature and overall presence, but also in his zest for life. He had big ideas, big dreams and big goals. He left a legacy for all the Virgin Islands by giving each island its beloved nickname: Twin City for St. Croix, Rock City for St. Thomas, Chocolate City for Tortola and of course Love City for St. John, his beloved place of birth.
This Memorial Day weekend we lovingly remember him and all the sacrifices he made for his country and his family. The effects of Agent orange took him from us too soon.
More importantly, we remember the sacrifices of all those who served in the United States military and died and the families who mourn for their loves ones. We can’t help but wonder what life would have been like if they weren’t taken from us so soon.
FREEDOM IS NOT FREE! We miss them. We love them. We remember them.
As we barbecue this Memorial Day weekend, let us all remember those who truly paid the price so that we can smile, flip burgers, and live in a generally free democratic society.
Stay safe Memorial Day and always...
Your friends at Love City Car Ferries, Inc.

As a child, I remember our parades in St. Thomas. The Wild Indians were usually among the last troupes to come into view. I eagerly anticipated them and looked on in awe. I love the display of culture, fantasy, and innate symbolism. Many people of Caribbean descent have native Indian ancestry. Seeing the Indians do their performance was always a surreal experience.
The above images were found in the photo library of the late Llewellyn "Big Lew" Sewer. They were post cards that he kept and were passed on to his kids. I am so happy they were preserved and I just wanted to share them with you.
Carnival is here! Enjoy the fete and remember these cultural symbolism be they Wild Indians, Mocko Jumbie or any others are part of our beautiful cultural landscape.

Happy Emancipation Day, July 3rd, and Independence Day, July 4th!
As we celebrate the emancipation of a people with the 1848 freedom of slaves in the #VirginIslands (then Danish West Indies) and the independence of our nation with the 1776 Declaration of Independence of the #USA, let us remember and continue to celebrate the sacrifices of the courageous individuals who fought on both fronts.
God bless the Virgin Islands and God bless the United States of America!
