On 9th April 2015, the Rotary Club of Macau had an annual joint meeting with our sponsored clubs: Rotaract Club of Macau and Rotaract Club of the University of Macau Students’ Union. Also, we had a visiting Rotarian, Immediate Past President John Utting and his wife Thea from the Rotary Club of Deal, UK. We had a good turnout of 42 in this big Rotary family gathering.

Both Rotaract Club presidents gave a very comprehensive club report with many meaningful service projects and their future activities from the remaining Rotary Year. We also celebrated April’s birthday star- President Salie from RAC.
