Our regular meeting, Jan/18, had 21 Rotarians, plus Rotaract IPP Mathew (my guest), 4 IP guests and Kula made a total of 27 presences. We have chat and wine tasting from PP Ip at the swimming pool side. Our meeting was a short one because today we have our 2nd Club Assembly. We have a very good fellowship.

Before the end I pass a congratulations card to give to our Rtn Lei Loi Tak for his medal: Silver Lotus. On behalf of the Rotary Club of Macau, I would like to thank him for years of generous service to our club and the community and congratulate him for the recognition that the Macau Government has given him with the awarding of the Silver Lotus. The award is richly deserved. Again we would like to thank him for his past and continuing generous service to Rotary and the Rotary Club of Macau. I pass the card collecting everyone’s signatures. Already sent it to him and he thanked all my Fellow Rotarians for that.
After the box donation: of MOP1,000 the regular meeting was adjourned.
And the 2nd Club Assembly started.

Because PP Filipe S. Fernandes our club assembly chair was unable to be present I proposed PP Florence Hui to take the chair, and unanimously voted yes.

After the call to order PP Synthia Chan was appointed as Club Assembly Secretary. Then was held with 21 members present and 19 proxies, a total of 40 with a qualified quorum for the Assembly. Later the assembly minutes will be sent out but I will share some points for your information :
