Wish you all a Happy and Prosperous Year 2015!
In the first meeting of 2015, we have a very good news for all members as our club just inducted new member Pedro Lobo with PP Fatima as his proposer. Pedro’s nationality is Portuguese and has lived in Macau for more than 20 years. He is a teacher at Escola Portuguesa de Macau, so we have one more member in the ‘Education‘ classification, joining Keith, Kazu and Elvo. Please join me in extending a huge welcome to Pedro to our family of Rotary to serve the communities in need above self.
