I hope most of you have recovered from the ‘ Flower Power’ fever after a marvellous evening at our 69th-anniversary charity ball last Saturday.  So happy to see most dressing up in ‘ 60’s/70’s flower ‘ style and dancing with heat and beat to the fantastic music of the ‘ Blue Note ‘band amongst 400 present. May I also repeat my vote of thanks expressed during the evening to all of you  , present or not, in supporting with the 5 or more ball tickets purchase,  cash/prize/wine donors solicitation and performers invitation without which our district-famous anniversary ball would not be so successful.  Facebook was swarmed with endless of our photos from all sources.
My heartiest appreciation also goes to our super Ball Chair ‘ Big Sam’ and his tireless and creative organizing committee, our MC duo Elvo & Geraldine, all our Rotaractor volunteers and to PP Guy for the Streetmosphere pair which got more photos snapped than the host club:-P. Please excuse me if I have inadvertently missed out anyone as it is again a BIG  THANK YOU to everyone for bringing your guests too for a very memorable fun evening. Ball Chair Sam will be writing to you separately with some update on this Ball’s financials. 
Pity we miss some of you who were engaged in the Patau show same evening. Congratulations as heard it’s another roaring success. Hope next year our dates won’t overlap..
We had nearly 20 visiting Rotarians from our sister clubs RC of Taipei and Makati North as well as RC Taipei son club RC Taipei Diamond coming to congratulate us and we had a very good fellowship lunch with them the next day.
You may also note that our Honorary Member  Consul General Ambassador K Matsuda specially came with his wife and it was so nice to see him on the dance floor enjoying our club’s signature fellowship style.
Oh, one more congratulations to PP Synthia for winning the 1st Prize of one  free night at Wynn Lakeview Suite plus Turbojet tickets! Lucky you !
