Dear Fellow Rotarians

An early Kung Hei Fat Choi to you all as we will cancel our club meeting@Venetian  on Jan 30 as it’s Chinese New Year’s Eve. Undoubtedly, all of us will be busy with our family reunion dinner and preparation for the new year celebration.

We will meet again for our Spring Dinner on Feb 6, 2014 (Thurs) at Plaza Chinese Restaurant our first social night of 2014! We already have 16 Rotarians signed up so for those who can come and are not yet enrolled, please inform me ASAP to help with seat planning for our Club Administration Chair, PP Choi.

Last meeting ( Jan 23 ) Highlights:-

-13 Rotarians ( KC, Liz, Kevin, Stella, Choi, Synthia, Fatima, Maneiras, Peter, Natasha, Andy and Pauline) with a box collection of $300.

-There was a meaningful presentation ceremony with PP Fatima, Chief of FuHong presented to our Club  a Guinness World Record Certificate of Participation in the largest soap mosaic on Aug 18, 2013 ( see photos attached) 

-P KC  and PE Kevin had a good interview session on the TDM English talk show together with P Judite of RAC before our club meeting, covering Rotary, our club’s local and international community services, membership and how we engage our members as well as that of Rotaract Club of Macau.  This half-hour talk show will be aired on TDM Portuguese Channel on  Thurs, Jan 30 around 9 pm after Portuguese News. It will be repeated on Fri,  Jan 31 at 7 pm in case you miss it while having your New Year’s eve dinner out of home.  Please mark your diary to tune in on time to support our Club’s publicity image promotion as this will be a good channel to broaden our net to recruit new members.

-PE Kevin reported that our next round of dental education to  Concordia School students will be held on Mar 18, 2014.

-PE Kevin, also Ball Chair, announced this year’s Annual Ball date on April 26 ( Sat ) at Venetian Ballroom and the Ball Committee has agreed on a theme of ‘ Brazil, Brazil’. Stay tuned for more details in due course.

-Though we had a smaller group this time, the meeting ended on a high and jovial note, thanks to Natasha’s iced wine. Check out the big grin on everyone from the photo attached.

Thanks again for your kind reading and see you all in the Year of the Horse!
