  • -started off at 7.30 am with the Rotary 50Km Ultramarathon in HK when our club participated with a 7-member relay team from Fuhong Society’s I Lok Heen center , past Rotaractor and associates. They finished within 4 hrs 58 mins which fared well within the 6 hours time limit
  • – cheering for PP Filipe’s led Rotaract Club of Macau’s hockey team ( comprises of Rotaractors and Fuhong’s service users ) to play a match against the HK hockey team. Our team won with score 3 : 2 !
  • – attended District Rotaract Peace Concert together with our Macau Rotaractors in the evening

IMG_0247This Thursday regular meeting was a Macau 5- clubs joint meeting cum a vocational talk by DG Peter Pang on his profession – plastic surgery. 22 of our members attended . There was also a very memorable moment when DG Peter gave recognition to senior Rotarians of 100 years and above in Macau ( age + rotary years). Naturally our club has the most of these Rotarians, 10 to be exact. PP Maneiras, PP ET, PP Choi, PP Fred, PP Gary, PP Peter, Rtn Lei Loi Tak, PP Alfredo, PP Ip and PP Guy, we are all so proud of you. You are our role model to ‘ Service Above Self’ indeed ! Do visit our club Facebook or website for photos of the happy moments.

Our ‘ Happy Garden’ Horticulture Therapy project is well underway at St Paul’s School rooftop garden and the Catholic Weekly ‘O Clarim’ recently featured our project in both Portuguese and English version. Kindly find attached clipping of the English coverage.
