Thanks to your support, we have 23 present on Thursday club meeting including visiting Rtn PP Chelsia To (RC Queensway) , Rotaract Club of Macau’s PE Matthew and Gary’s guest Li Ying.
We did not have any speaker so was a great evening of fellowship, chit chat and laughter. RAC PE Matthew came to introduce their ‘ This Close to End Polio’ finale fund-raising program ‘ Family Olympic Fun’ to be held on May 22 at St Paul’s School with family games, bazaar sale and lucky draw.
Our generous Rotarians bought heaps of $10 lucky draw tickets that evening and for those Rotarians missing this opportunity and wish to buy and support their ‘End Polio’ cause , please let us know. PP Fred put on his auctioneer hat by offering his stack of lucky draw tickets plus a ‘mini speaker’ device for auction to add to our happy donation box. Treasurer Ricardo and P Liz bought the speaker and lucky draw tickets respectively .
So final box collection was : $1830.
