Aren’t we all excited about the annual big event of our Club? Yes, we will be celebrating our 69th charter anniversary on May 7 ( Sat ) at the Venetian under a “Peace” theme – ‘ FLOWER POWER’ . So put on your colorful free and easy attire to join us singing ‘ San Francisco ‘ and ‘ California Dreaming’ and dance to the hot music of the Blue Note band when we will relive the ‘ Woodstock Festival’ fun. Ball Chair PE Sam and I look forward to welcoming you and if you have not yet got your ball tickets, please contact PP Stella soonest and welcome payment by cheque or cash bank-in to our BNU ball account 9005 169 083.

We have a very inspiring talk on ” Doumo Obrigada , Portugal , Macao & Me ” by Rtn Yuko on Thursday. Thank you Yuko for bringing us back to the history of Portuguese in Japan, interesting language similarities and sharing pics of the young you and Andrew!


We hyped up our Japanese atmosphere in the evening by tasting a new Japanese fruit liquor which I am thankful to Rtn Pedro for helping to bring in the products timely for our May 7 ball too. PP Fred and Yasmin kindly donated $600 to support ‘ Beverage for Charity’ for this refreshing liquor.

Thank you also to the generous 14 Rtns and 2 guests ( Andrew, better half of Yuko and PP Gary’s guest Li Ying ) that our box collection for the evening was $1000.

Have a nice Labour Day holiday weekend and kindly note that there is no meeting on Thursday, May 5.

Be seeing most of you on Sat, May 7 at 6.30 pm ( cocktail reception ) at the Venetian Level 3 Grand Ballroom. PP Stella will advise you on the parking arrangement shortly.

Yours in Rotary

Elizabete Fong
President 2016
