The event of the Rotary Year was well attended by our club, including: President Sam, Charter President Patrick, Past District Governor Belinda (via Zoom), Past President Grace, Past President Eddie Leung, Past President Angela, Past President Dora, Past President WT, Past President Lily and Immediate Past President Mark. Past President Eddie Wong returned from the UK and joined the Governor’s Banquet on Day 1.
On April 28, in a hybrid meeting in which members joined the meeting both physically and online, we are happy to have our own Past District Governor Belinda to talk to us about “Doing Good in the World,” a “special edition” of what is going on in the world of the The Rotary Foundation. Past President Angela gave the introduction of our speaker. Past District Governor Belinda started with a quiz of basic The Rotary Foundation questions: When was it established? What are the focuses? What are the features of DDF and World Fund? Next, Past District Governor Belinda shared stories about doing good in the world, about a project in Uganda (empowering girls) and a Hong Kong project by RC of The Peak, teaching youth through STEM education. Also of note is Rotary’s Program of Scale Grant. Each year Rotary International approves one such grant, which goes towards a large scale, high impact program that uses at least US$2 million. Finally, Past District Governor Belinda congratulated our own President Sam as the first ever AKS Circle of Honor Member in our District. Past President Kay gave our club’s vote of thanks.
