Before closing, I thank and send my appreciation to everyone for your advice, support and generous donation. It was my privilege to serve the club at 2017-18 – Rorary: Make a Difference President and has been a wonderful, fulfilling and enjoyable experience for me. Together we have achieved many meaningful humanitarian service projects, increased contributions to the Rotary Foundation, and strengthened our club foundation with new members, Phillip, Sallie and Matthew, but unfortunately, we lost our dear Lei Loi Tak passed away peacefully on 21/02/2018 and 3 members resigned Perry Lam, for family reasons, Ignacio Marcovecchio for personal reasons and Raymond Lo for professional reasons. I would like to take this opportunity to thank their contribution to the club wish them all the best and welcome them to join our activities and projects. July 5 is the first regular meeting of the new Rotary Year 2028-19 be the inspiration.

Please come to support and give encouragement to our young President Elvo Sou.
