Cyprus Chapitre
Bailliage of Algarve
Limassol, December 6, 2019
At the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel
" a wonderful occasion exemplifying the finest traditions of the Chaîne "

Our Gala Induction Evening was held at the Four Seasons Hotel. This prestigious five-star establishment is owned and operated by Muskita Hotels Ltd. It lies on a sandy beach east of Limassol approximately midway between the airports of Larnaca and Pafos and only a few minutes’ drive from the city centre.

At the Induction Ceremony, presided over by Bailli Délégué Victor Papadopoulos in his capacity as a Member of the Conseil Magistral, 30 new members received their Chaîne regalia with 15 promotions of existing members. Among the new members inducted was Her Excellency Madame Isabelle Dumont, the Ambassador of France to Cyprus, who became a Chevalier d’Honneur. Victor was supported in his induction duties by Chancelier Andreas Heracleous and Échanson Heinz Mueller.

We enjoyed Champagne Ruinart ‘R de Ruinart’ Brut at the reception after which 200 participants sat down to the Gala Dinner. The menu was prepared by the hotel’s Executive Chef, Conseiller Culinaire Panicos Hadjitofis and his brigade.
