Dear Fellow Rotarians

Well, well you missed a lot if you did not attend our Mar 20  Thurs regular meeting at Venetian! It was a hot stimulating evening of interesting dinner talk and much hugs and chat with our long-missed friends Rtn Thomas Reitzig, PP Jim O’Mullan with his lovely wife KK, Nancy and Jennifer, wife and daughter of late PP Tony Wilkinson .

We have a big group of 26 with :-

  • – 15 members
  • – guest speaker : Maryann Hwee and Henry Southern from FringeBacker
  • – PP Ip Guests : Wilson and Edith from YMCA
  • – PP Stella Guests: Nancy and Jennifer Wilkinson
  • – Alumnus PP Jim and wife KK O’Mullan
  • – PP Synthia and Liz ‘s  guests from Brazilian Association


Maryann, Founder and CEO of Fringebacker enlightened us on a novel model of creative fundraising, how to find potential ‘ fund-investors’, and how to market /create publicity for a fund-raiser ‘ product’. Fringebacker is an online platform providing the consulting bridge between fund-raiser and potential donors. For those who are interested, please visit their website

Thomas had a long update to share with us, having been away, working in Germany for quite a long while. He touched everyone present that the warm welcoming family feeling he had in our club was no match in the clubs he visited in the past.  Bet PP Stella’s supply of Aveleda white wine was partly the reason! Thomas, we promise you free flow and stock of Aveleda await you in your Macau Rotary home so do try to come back more often in future.

Jim, our PP for 2000-01 brought his lovely wife KK for a brief homecoming reunion with us. Jim, who’s copied here, was so kind to accept our invitation to be our first member of RC Macau Alumni and we will keep you posted of our club’s programs, community and social.  We are so glad that you and KK are living happily and healthily in Malaysia but do come back to see us whenever you feel like some Portuguese food and wine and, of course, missing your old friends at Rotary

We also had a small farewell to Rtn Natasha who is embarking on a new assignment in Dubai. She loves our club so much that she will remain in our club and promised to come back and join our club events whenever she can. Thank you Natasha. We will miss you and your Ice Wine . Bon voyage from all of us and all the best to your new venture.
