On July 27, our Club met for lunch at Regal Hongkong Hotel. Our newest member Rotarian Wong Ka Man gave us a very informative vocational talk on insurance and actuarial science. Charter President Patrick also revealed a number of high-level insurance industry strategies. We would love to have Charter President Patrick to give us a separate talk on this!
President Eliza as the District PPE Chair together with our to-be-pinned new member Ka Man and her family attended tree planting at Tai Po Fung Yuen where the Reserve is home to approximately 220 species of butterflies out of 245 in Hong Kong. In total, the group planted 67 bushes contributing to the preservation of the Reserve and its unique ecosystem. The event was not just helping carbon reduction but also pollination.
On March 9, our Club met for our third Club Assembly of the Rotary Year. The most exciting highlight of our meeting was the attendance of Past President MK and Lina. Past President MK, having escaped death by lightning strike, duly presented his Treasurer report. President Elect Jason, as Chair of the Assembly, gave details of the upcoming Scout Trail Walk and the upcoming 36th Club Anniversary Celebration Party. President Eliza did a recap of Club and District events in the past quarter, and gave updates to our ongoing District and Global Grants. Past Presidents Mark and Dora, and Rotarian Ka Man also stood up to share. Potential member Summly also joined our lunch gathering.
A total of 12 Club members, ex-member Past President Theresa and Charter President Patrick’s guest Wong Ka Man attended the regular lunch meeting. All ladies wore red by coincidence, while most men wore blue. Of course, our Speaker Rotarian Sammy, in his bright-red Chinese suit, presented the 2023 Year of the Rabbit feng shui to us. President Eliza would especially thank our Duty Rotarians: Charter President Patrick and President Elect Nominee David for arriving well before 12:30pm to greet members and guests!
