PDG Ada Cheng gave us a very motivating and informative talk on the core values of Rotary instead of the originally planned talk on ‘Public Image’ in view that we had 2 new members being inducted the same evening. She reminded us of the important value of the Four Way Test of the things WE think, say or do, the Object of Rotary and the Rotarian Code of Conduct (we used to call it the Declaration of Rotarians in Business and Profession) which make Rotary unique and different from other organizations and that is why we join Rotary.
She reminded us to wear our Rotary pin all the time because we are proud to be a Rotarian. She also encouraged the Club to donate US$2,650 to End Polio cos the Rotary Foundation was started from a donation of US$26.50 100 years ago and the Bill Gates Foundation will still match 1:2 to end polio. I hope the Board may consider it.
Aris and Ignacio are both proposed by PP Synthia and they have the honour of being inducted by PDG Ada. Congratulations to Rtn. Aris and Rtn. Ignacio and welcome to our big family. PP Fatima was also recognized as PHF+5 the same evening. Congratulations Fatima!
