The “International Gala” on Jan. 25 was a vibrant fashion display as many ambassadors, journalists and other international guests donned attire of their country of origin. At cocktail hour, music announced the arrival of lion dancers to herald Chinese New Year. Former NPC president and master of ceremonies Gil Klein introduced three generations of the Belkind family. In tribute to Nelson Mandela, the national anthem of the Republic of South Africa was sung by Roger Isaacs, and Ambassador Ebrahim Rasool served as inspirational keynote speaker. Chair of the 2014 International Inaugural Committee Jan Du Plain closed the program with the words, “Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver, but one is gold.”
