First of all, one happy announcement to all of you. Our “ Light Up Rotary Great Gondola Grab” project has won the nomination to represent District 3450 to apply for “Rotary International Significant Achievement Award”. Ours will be reviewed by RI Award committee together with nominations from other Districts. I look forward to updating you when the results are known.
On 12th March, 2015, there was a cheque presentation ceremony to 3 local organizations from funds raised during our successful Great Gondola Grab project. 3 beneficiaries included Concordia Special Education School represented by Principal Grace, Macau Autism Association represented by Director Nicole and Macau Down Syndrome Association represented by Vice President Mr. Yip received a cheque donation of MOP50,000 each. The ceremony was witnessed by Vice President & Assistant General Manager Winnie Wong of Sands Cotai Central. These 3 beneficiaries will use the donation to implement therapeutic courses for their service users. I will be reporting the progress in due course.
Of course, a big thank you to Sands China Limited for fully sponsoring this meaningful Great Gondola Grab charity draw. Congratulations to Rtn. Janet for leading this impactful and meaningful service project, which brought the Club to new height.
Rotaract Club of Macau Vice President Cathy shared the reports and activities with us in last meeting. They had the 13th Goodwill Ambassador Program Camp on last weekend which this year their destination will be in Australia. Also, to celebrate the Chinese New Year with the elderly, they had a program “Spring Cleaning” to help those folks refreshing their homes.
