Party 2
Farewell Party for AITCV Director
Dr. Jari Backman (1)

Dr. Jari Backman, AITCV Director will return at the end of the year back to his home university together with his wife Sinikka. AITCV staff and students honored his stay by organizing a Farewell Part at AITCV premises on November 28, 2000.

The party was started with a Vietnamese English ballad to Dr. Jari to get everybody warm. Then the staff members gave their interpretation of Dr. Jari's manners in the office, which included mobile phone manners and ISO9002 evaluation. The play ended with the chorus of AITCV Quality Policy.

Then there were more performances and the most affecting moment was as the AITCV staff and students circulated in the darkness one small candle and each were able to give a short wish, which wishes were consolidated to Dr. Jari as he in the end was requested to add his own one and blow the flame away.
