New RCS “Home”: Letter from President Tiziana Richiardi

Dear fellow Rotarians and friends,

We finally found our new home: HUALUXE Shanghai Twelve At
Hengshan (12 Hengshan Road Xuhui District, Shanghai 200031~上海
衡山路十二号华邑酒店, 中国上海市徐汇区衡山路 12 号)
As you know, the hotel is offering us great support in terms of
accommodation, service, and cost. They have only one requirement to
better serve us: confirming headcount by Friday at 3 pm . This is to
help the chef and kitchen better prepare and, at the same time, avoid
wasting food.

I know we are not so accustomed to early RSVPs, but I ask you to make
an effort in order to build a strong and trustworthy relationship with the
hotel. As Rotarians, it is also our duty and responsibility to take care of
the environment and follow food waste policies.

This doesn’t mean that if you fail to RSVP by Friday, you won’t be able
to attend. Everyone is always welcome at any time, and a seat will be
arranged regardless. You might be served something different from the
kitchen compared to the rest of the attendees, depending on the
ingredients available at the time.

Confident in your understanding and support in making this operation
smooth, I send my best regards.

Tiziana Richiardi
Rotary Club of Shanghai President – RY 2023-24
