After receiving numerous congratulatory messages, I would like to humbly thank you all for your support and encouragement; I especially thank fellow members from committees and sub-committees, volunteers, friends and family alike.
It is with the same sense of humility that I shall take on the role of president of the Our Lady of the Lily Musical Society in l-Imqabba, even more so when considering that my predecessor and mentor Teddy Farrugia left the colossal legacy of a thirty-five-year presidency; an extraordinary and most honourable milestone.
I would have never imagined that I would be writing these very words, but here I am, ready and willing to lead and serve my family of colleagues and supporters. As a voluntary organisation, we face trying times, moreover exacerbated by an unprecedented global obstacle. It is a time to stop and think, reflect and resolve; but I really do believe that we will come out of this better and stronger than ever before.
Above all, I thank my fellow committee members who have entrusted me with such a vital role; I promise to be just another team member, working for a cause much greater than ourselves. I pray for Our Lady’s blessings, so that she may guide us on our journey onward.
