IT’S VOCATIONAL SERVICE MONTH!
SITE VISIT & MEETING AT THE VENETIAN – 25 SEPT 08
To anticipate for the Vocational Service Month in October, 40 Rotarians and guests visited the back of the house of The Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel. All present were impressed by the smart staff laundry service which handles 7000 – 8000 pieces of laundry daily, the largest kitchen in Macau, nice staff canteen and recreation area and certainly the delicious food.
Certificates of Recognition to District Outstanding Rotaract Advisors were presented to PP Gary Ngai and PP Ip Pui Fai.
Birthday toast were proposed for September birthday stars:
PP Peter Kwok, Ulrich Maeder, PE David Shelton-Smith and Teren Cheong.
Thanks again to Service Project Team Member Wolfram Diener for all the arrangement and the Venetian Macao-Resort-Hotel for sponsoring the dinner. Dinner fee collected that night will be used as service project fund.
