Our Patron-H.E. Dr. George Vella, President of Malta

Our Patron, H.E. Dr. George Vella, who is the 10th President of the Republic of Malta, most kindly accepted us in his San Anton Palace, to hold our Meetings at the majestic Russian Chapel. Be Positive members are ever so grateful for this full hearted support by the Presidency.


Since our first meeting on the 8th May 2015, we normally meet every second Thursday of the month – unless it is a Public Holiday.

Meanwhile, on the 1st September, 2015, we were honoured by the then President, H.E. Marie Louise Coleiro Preca,  who accepted to be our first Patron.
