The Knights of Rizal Bonn Chapter showed a strong presence at the TurnOver and Induction Ceremonies of the European Knights of Rizal Council held at the Best Western County Hotel on October 13, 2012 in the heart of Brussels, Belgium. Attending the event were Sir Dirk Hampel, Sir Sir Celso Lacuna, Sir Peter Plückebaum and Sir Janero del Rosario. LFR President Lady Helen represented the Ladies of Bonn. Sir Celso Lacuna was inducted as Area Commander for Germany. He also took the opportunity to introduce Sir Dirk Hampel as the incoming Commander of the Bonn Chapter.
The event was very successful. Numerous Knights and Ladies all over Europe attended the Ceremonies that the reserved hall was barely large enough to contain the participants. Merymaking went well into the early hours of the next day. Brotherhood was affirmed among the Knights and nteworks were strengthened among Chapters. In fact, the KOR Bonn Chapter was invited to two additional TurnOver and Induction events: from the Modena Chapter and from the Paris Chapter.
