Lunch meeting: Speaker: IPP Alex Lai

We had two birthday boys today: Rtn Michael Wan and PP Rex. Acting President Betty presented a bottle of red wine to them as a birthday gift.

Rtn Marianne from Rotary Club at Cape Town, South Africa visited us and introduced her club to us.  Our former member PP Nico inducted Rtn Marianne to their Club and suggested she pay us a visit while in Hong Kong.

Our speaker today was IPP Alex Lai from Rotary Club of Tsimshatsui, who spoke about Sharing of the “Love-in-Action Visiting Trip to Luoyang & Luoning”.  IPP Alex told us that he took a trip to Luoyang and Luoning in May this year with his club’s members to visit the orphans.  He was impressed by the pureness and happiness of the children and gave some background about providing professional services to them to help the orphans overcome some physical constraints and build their confidence. IPP Alex’s club will visit again and invited our members to join them.

Sergeant at arms Rtn Dirk collected HK$718 for raffle and fines. IPP Alex helped to draw the raffle gift: box of moon cakes.  The winner was Rtn Ernie.
