On September 28, our Assistant Governor Leo Yu visited our Club to share RI President and District Governor’s vision for the year, as well as the latest updates of the District. Two former members, Past President Theresa and ex-member Ada Leung also joined. A visiting Rotarian, Suzanne Cook, of Rotary Club of Brampton, Canada, also joined us. Rotarian Suzanne shared a bit of her background, her Rotary Club’s projects as well as her plans for the upcoming two weeks in Hong Kong. We wish her a great rest of the trip. On occasion, President Jason also exchanged club flags with Rotarian Suzanne, thus adding to our prized collection of club flags from around the world! Heeding Honorary Member Vivien’s call, members donated shoes, clothing and stationery to Good Fortune and Wisdom International Charity Fund, who will send all those items to Kenya. The campaign will last for another month; please contact Past President Dora for details and ways to help.
On November 3, several members of our Club attended Rotary Club of Hong Kong Island East’s regular club meeting, thus resuming our annual tradition of visiting our beloved mother Club. President Sam led a large group consisting of Charter President Patrick, Past District Governor Belinda, Past President Grace, Immediate Past President Mark, and President Elect Eliza. President Bernard Lee and his members gave the visiting Rotarians a warm welcome. During the meeting, we learned much from the day’s speaker, Rotarian Benson Ng, who talked about anti-money laundering. While there, Past District Governor Belinda took the opportunity to promote various Rotary Foundation-related activities. President Sam, while accepting gifts from the host, invited members from mother club to attend our 35th anniversary dinner, to be held in March 2022. We thank President Bernard, his Immediate Past President Leo Yu and other members of Rotary Club of Hong Kong Island East for their warm hospitality and overall generosity.
