St Andrew’s Day Toast

A toast to St Andrew
Canapes, Cocktails and Haggis

Dear Members, Friends and Sponsors of the Society,

I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones well as we continue to manage our lives around COVID-19.

This month we would normally be hosting the St Andrew’s Ball and while the ongoing pandemic means that we will not be doing so this year, we will instead host a small gathering to mark St Andrew’s Day on Monday 30th November. I would like to invite you to join us in recognising this auspicious date.

The gathering will be held at the Mandarin Oriental, Jakarta and will consist of canapes, cocktails, some haggis, a few drops of whisky and some words from the Chieftain! The venue will offer both outdoor and indoor space however we are limiting the event to approximately 30 guests to ensure social distancing and adherence with local regulations – also in line with the hotel’s ‘We Care’ procedures for coronavirus.

The evening will start at 6pm ending no later than 9pm – it is not a black-tie event so please come ‘business casual’ and a hint of tartan would be welcomed. To support the Society’s charitable activities, we will be charging IDR750,000 per guest.

Given the limited space, kindly confirm your attendance directly to the Chieftain at chieftain@thejavastandrewsociety.com where confirmation will be given on a first come, first served basis.
I do hope you will be able to join us.

Kind regards
