Turkey Gala Dinner
Bailliage of Adana
Adana, December 15, 2018
Last National Board meeting of the year

In its effort to support the development of local Bailliages in Turkey, the National Board held its last meeting of 2018 in Adana.

The meeting was followed by a joint one at which the National and Adana local Bailliage Boards discussed an action plan for the expansion of the Chaîne in this part of southern Turkey. On the occasion of the National Board’s visit, the local Bailliage organized an end-of-year Gala Dinner Sheraton Grand Adana. It was attended by 70 members and spouses.

The evening began with a reception where a selection of local wines was served with a variety of cold and warm canapés. A seven course “Tour of the World” themed menu, especially composed and prepared for this occasion, paired with a selection of superb local wines sponsored by Dolucia Wines, the second largest wine producer in Turkey.
