A Night With Our Stars

June 27, 2014
Two Oceans celebrated a brilliant Year End Dinner on Wednesday and swore in a brand new committee! We were spoiled to a delicious meal at Barracudas in Fish Hoek as a festive group of members and partners gathered to enjoy a special evening together.

Stars were the theme throughout - from the decor to our Division Champs!  Reto Camichel took the club to it's 9th DCP point of the year as he ended his CC journey in style - doing a live make-over with fellow member Claire Strohbach. Carey Fenn spoiled the club to an amazing video of our year and many members were recognised for extraordinary achievements throughout the year with some rather 'different' prizes - fun herbs awards!  From the 'rocketing to the top'  award and for helping with 'sage advise' to name a few it was a lot of fun! Jeremy Fenn was crowned the Ann Sylvester Toastmaster of the Year and also took over as Club President.  All in all, Two Oceans has a lot to celebrate and look forward to!
