Salut à tous et en particulier aux personnes qui ont contribué directement pour faire de la réunion de Vosh International chez nous un succès!! Nous avons eu beaucoup de félicitations de la part des gens que nous avons accueillis lors de cette réunion internationale, avec la présence de personnes du monde entier. Je m’excuse du délai pour ce message, mais Alicia et Gustavo sont repartis ce matin et seront là pour accueillir le groupe du mois de novembre au Mexique, ce qu’ils font déjà depuis près de 20 ans.
Je veux surtout remercier les personnes qui ont aidé à organiser l’accueil, le vin/fromage à l’université, ainsi que l’accueil à l’entrepôt dimanche matin. Je vous transmet le message de Nathalie Venezia, la responsable de Vosh International (voir section en anglais).
Encore une fois merci à tous,
Hello to everyone, in particular those who directly contributed to making the welcoming of the Vosh International meeting a success! We received many accolades from those who attended this international meeting from all over the world. I am sorry for the delay in sending out this message, but Alicia and Gustavo left this morning and will be in Mexico to welcome the group going to the mission in November, as they have done for nearly 20 years now. I wish to especially thank all those who contributed directly to organizing the wine and cheese Friday night and the welcoming of Vosh International Sunday morning at the warehouse. I am forwarding you the message we received from Nathalie Venezia, the director general of Vosh International.
Once more, thanks to everyone,
Dear Pierre, Joel, Claude and the members of VOSH-Santa Cruz,
I wanted to send you all a heartfelt thank you and sincere appreciation for everything you all did to help make the VOSH Annual Meeting a success.
Thank you Pierre, for sharing your parish rooms with us for our Friday meetings. They were spacious and comfortable and we all felt welcomed and well fed!
The Friday evening reception was lovely, with delicious local cheeses and good wine. We appreciate your generosity and warmth. Even when we could not speak the same language, they kindness of all of you was evident to each of us. And it was a treat to see the optometry school.
At the meeting on Saturday, the group enjoyed your welcome comments and especially those in French. Thank you also for facilitating the addition of Gustavo (and his mother) to the Agenda. It reminded us once again why we all do this.
And to top it off, we were all impressed and inspired by your warehouse! It was organized, well equipped, progressive and had an endless supply of doughnuts too!
VOSH is a special organization, as we all know, and I am proud to be a part of it, particularly when we have chapters such as yours.
I am proud and humbled to call you my friends and look forward to seeing you in Orlando at the next Annual Meeting, if not before.
