The interpretation of the theme was unveiled in the series of programmes earmarked to mark the occasion. A major highlight of the programme was the formal unveiling of the 80th Anniversary logo, which represents the symbol of the celebrations and that places the club on the high pedestal of recreation, social interaction and bonding, including the values of the club to remain focused and a dynamic nerve centre of business and social networking.
