October 10, 2010

The Vasco Da Gama Club held a Gala Dinner last night [Oct 9] at the Fairmont Hamilton to celebrate their 75th Anniversary. Named after the famed Portuguese explorer, the Club, located on Reid Street, is a central place for the island’s strong Portuguese community.

The event was organized by the executive  committee, who are pictured below from left to right: Rui Medeiros, Armando Peichoto, Michael Maiato, Edward Correia, President R. Paul Fortuna, Andrea Moniz-DeSouza, Antonio Pacheco and Miguel Pereira.

After relaxing and mingling at their cocktail hour, the guests sat for dinner to be served. While dinner was served, a slide show was shown highlighting different eras of the past 75 years including past presidents and sports teams. A presentation was made by the club president and gifts were presented to past serving presidents, and they were thanked for their service.

The musical band Starlight were introduced and as witnessed in the video had the crowd dancing and singing the night away. The evening came to a close near midnight having started at 615pm at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess.
