Lunch meeting: Club officers updated members and guests on the progress of various projects

Due to the proximity of holidays, we did not have speaker today, so we had club officers update us on the progress of various projects.  President Peter visited our sister club, Rotary Club of Yokohama Midori last week for their anniversary celebration and received a HK$33,200 donation for Leprosy Patient’s Project in Sichuan.  PP George reported that he, PE Stephen, and others had a meeting on the ShelterBox Project and will start setting up a limited company with charitable status.  Rtn William went to Macau and joined their meeting and the horse racing event as well as their blood donation day, which he enjoyed those very much.

GUESTS
Rtn Rebecca brought her friend Mr. March Ko and Rtn Ernie brought two friends to join us.
