After an absence of two months, the Lighthouse Club of Pattaya returned with another of their popular networking evenings on Friday the 1st of February, the venue on this occasion was the ‘Moon Deck’ of the Hard Rock Cafe.
As the beer and wine started flowing the chairman of Lighthouse Club Pattaya, Joe Grunwell, made a short speech to the two hundred plus guests, thanking everybody for attending and for the Hard Rock Hotel for accommodating them. He also reiterated that Lighthouse helps those who have been disadvantaged by the building trade and that everybody attending the event was therefore helping them.
