Dinner was served in Bali national Golf Club’s VIP room. President Dona welcomed everyone and introduced visiting Rotarians and guests. She thanked the sponsors for their generous donations and all who helped organizing this Board Handover.

During dinner pennants of visiting Rotary Clubs, the Rotary theme RY 2016/2017 and our participation in Project Protect (Fee motorcycle helmets to elementary school childdren in Nusa Dua) were displayed.

Master of Ceremony, Eddie Fitzgerald guided humorously yet eloquently through the program.

Towards the end of dinner the first session of Lucky Draws took place.
