The Christmas dinner was such a success in no small part due to your energy, enthusiasm and organizational skills. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the hard work is rewarded by the success. You made it easy for us to understand the meaning of Christmas and to meet diplomats, parliamentarians, defence attachés and business leaders.
