Sep is Rotary Education and Literacy month so let’s continue to promote education advancement for the youth through our service projects.

Thursday meeting highlights:-

  • – Attendance: 12 Rotarians, St Paul’s School Mr Philip Lai, two UK Summer Camp students and Liz’s guests from the new Macao English Talents Development Association
  • – We celebrated Sep birthday stars : PP Peter, PP David , PE Sam and Rtn Maeder with PP Peter cutting the cake on behalf of them. Please join me in wishing them a very happy , healthy and blessed birthday !
  • – UK Summer Camp students Eric and Mary gave a very interesting sharing of their 2 weeks’ stay in Manchester, UK with photo-packed presentation. Their stay with host families, group visits to Liverpool /Petty Pool famous spots , Rotary Club visits and summer camp training enriched their experience and confidence tremendously. This outbound youth annual program once again proved to be a very meaningful educational project
  • – Did you know that we have a ‘ gang of 4’ Senior Rotarians whose membership service has surpassed 40 years?
