Baton Pass - David RoyleThis year's Godiva Annual Pizza Party was an online get together on Tuesday evening, December 8th.  We reviewed the happenings of this year unlike any other, introduced our new club Vice President Kevin Rumsey, and passed off the baton from Ariana Bevilacqua to our new president Susie Castellanos Hansley in an epic fashion. Susie compiled a video of past Godiva leaders from across our 45 year history all the way back to founders David Royle, the first Godiva president, and his friend and immediate successor Roland Rust.  Above, David holds up a vintage Godiva singlet in the middle of his pass; view the entire video to see our him and the long line of presidents who've kept Godiva moving forward across five decades.
