Netherlands Antilles Chapitre

Curaçao, December 6, 2014

The Bailliage held its annual gala induction event at the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort (formerly the Hyatt Hotel).

Perfectly situated on 27 acres of pristine property between the Caribbean Sea and Spanish Water Bay the resort captures natural Caribbean charm and delivers it with an international elegance and sophistication.

The Chapitre was attended by almost 100 members and guests. The Champagne reception started what was to be an evening of uncompromising service within the premier amenities of this luxurious Curaçao establishment. We were delighted that the senior members of the Resort’s management team were able to join us for this convivial prelude to the Induction Ceremony and the Gala Dinner.

In my capacity as a Member of the Conseil Magistral I inducted new members and promoted several others to higher grades. For the dinner that followed the tables were set in a Festive Holiday spirit. The menu was especially notable for a newly-inspired shrimp hors d’oeuvre and an interesting freshly smoked salmon presentation.

At the end of the evening the kitchen and service brigades received well-deserved applause. Concluding the accolades, Rob de Bekker, Executive Vice-President of the Resort, was presented with a commemorative diploma by the National officers.
