President Sandro Rosell and his colleagues headed to the town in El Garraf where as well the itinerant meeting, they also paid an institutional visit to the Town Hall. There, they were welcomed by the local mayor, Miquel Forns along with other councillors, senior members of the local sports scene and representatives from the Peña Barcelonista de Sitges.
Presentation of gifts
In the assembly hall, Miquel Forns welcomed his guests and presented them with copies of the book 'Sitges de ayer y de siempre', as well as a model of the local church, one of the most emblematic buildings in the town. Sandro Rosell thanked his host, and while also handing over a gift of his own, explained that they had decided to come to Sitges because so many members of his board had links in the town.
