Candlelight Dinner 2013

29 November 2013

Good food and good company mark the typical IH formal dinner. The final dinner of the year, however, is special.

For one, we welcomed Tess Bennett, the incoming IHMA chairperson for 2014. Tiffanie Sugianto, the outgoing IH chairperson, presented her a tiara, effectively passing off the baton. She also presented gifts to the IHMA committee of 2013 to thank them for their service for the year.

Also, congratulations to Nicholas Chor for winning the Diane and Howard Cook Award. He was presented this award for his embodiment of the spirit of International House.

Much like the flag dinner, representatives of each countries pledged a commitment to carrying the light of love, friendship and goodwill from one nation to another in their mother tongue. Symbolic of the pledge read, they carried lit candles to light the centrepieces of their respective tables.
