Rotaract Club of Nicosia – Cutting of the Vasilopita @ Fratelli (12.01.2012)

On Thursday 12th January 2012  our Rotaractors and friends got together at Fratelli Bar & Restaurant to celebrate the New Year.

This celebration was held with the traditional cutting of a Vasilopita. A tradition associated with the blessing of the house (or in our case RAC Nicosia) and the blessing of good luck for the new year to a lucky person, in  whose piece, the hidden coin is found.

Members and friends alike, each enjoyed a piece of the delicious Vasilopita cake. As fate would have it the hidden coin was found in the piece cut for our Club leaving us with the hope that our endeavours as a Club this year would also be accompanied with luck !

Our partying at Fratelli continued…and the general merriment was not only attributed  to the excellent wine served by Fratelli’s staff but also to the rewarding feeling of pride for the work done in 2011 and our enthusiasm for things to come in 2012.

This joyous occasion, in the presence of our Club’s members and friends, was the perfect opportunity to welcome our Club’s first new member for 2012.

In the pinning ceremony held,  Anna Maria Leotsakou was made the Club’s newest member as a reward for her enthusiasm and contributions to our Club.

We warmheartedly welcome Anna Maria to the Club and the Rotary family !!
