Dear Members and Friends,
On this Thanksgiving Day, when we are prompted to reflect on all for which we have to be thankful, I am reminded of this speech that I gave at our last Thanksgiving Gala. (attached).
In that speech, I spoke about how humanity, although far from perfect, has never been in such a good situation and therefore we should give thanks for that.
Our annual Thanksgiving Charity Gala dinner on Thursday the 21st of November was a wonderful evening attended by both AmCham members and non-members from all business sectors in Gibraltar.
