Do stay warm as a sneak preview of winter is coming !
We have an Area 1 Joint Club Meeting on Tues with our 10 members joining to listen to PDG David Harilela and DGN HW Fung sharing:-
– the new ‘ Rotary Global Reward Scheme’ which we must encourage you all to register with My Rotary in order to enjoy the wide variety of merchants offers specially catered to Rotarians. Many HK merchants have joined and Macau adding on e.g. Holiday Inn restaurants. PE Sam and I are happy to help you activating your My Rotary account in next meeting if you have not done so. It’s as simple as ABC
– ‘ THE ONE’ award searching for unsung heroes with quite attractive monetary cash prize both internationally and local.
Today we have a new service project for the Elderly – ‘ Rotary Day with Grannies’ . Over 80 home-alone elderlies from 4 associations joined us and our Rotaractors in a morning walking tour of Taipa and Coloane with lunch at a Portuguese restaurant. It’s truly heartwarming to see some of them experiencing their many ‘ firsts ‘ like tasting Portuguese egg tart, Portuguese food, visiting Coloane’s St Francis Church, Tam Kung Temple and even ‘selfie’! Our Rotary service once again helped us do good and offer ‘ family warmth’ to this ‘ lonely’ community.
UMSU Rotaractors did some games with them during lunchtime and the elderlies were all in high spirit to participate, grabbing the mic to sing.
Every grannie walked away happily with a box of cookie kindly sponsored by Rtn Lei Loi Tak plus towel and white flower oil. We also prepared a keep-warm mug gift which will be delivered to their centers later . Thanks a lot to our Rtn Lei.
