We celebrated Rotary’s 111th anniversary of servicing and doing good to the world on 23rd February 2016 and what a milestone, thanks to every one of you for your ‘ service above self ‘ contribution.

Club Meeting Highlights

– 13 of us joined the meeting and we had quite a few guests- Hon Member Annabela, PP Keith’s Becky, daughter Julia and son-in-law Tony, GWA William and Liz guest Bernard Li
– Guest speaker, Dr Lai Yun Fee’s talk on ‘ Anti-aging’ presentation, as PP Peter said ‘ gave useful knowledge and enlightened everyone how to resist anti-aging and to revitalize our wellbeing’. The Q&A session was actively participated which would have been much longer if not for time. Well, we learned from Dr Fee that wine, caffeine and aspirin in reasonable intake are good anti-ageing agents and ‘ snoring’ is a sign of ageing!!! So thankful to PP Maneiras for re-inviting Dr Fee to come speak to us againIMG_9221.

We also welcome Ms Yuko Matsumoto who paid her admission and club dues, whom we will induct her as our new member in the coming Thurs ( Mar 3) club meeting. Please come join us and PP Keith, her proposer to witness the happy moment of our club adding a new lady member.

Also, we have invited our Rtn Chris Audroing to speak to us on the ‘ Real Estate situation in Macau’ so do come and support him on Mar 3.

Box collection: $2000 which we will combine with the next meeting’s box collection as ‘ service tips’ to the Venetian serving team for the past year.
