Regular Lunch meeting. Speaker TBA.

Our speaker today was Ms. Jenny She, Rotaracter from Rotary Club of Hong Kong Northeast.  Jenny the Peace Forum in Hawaii as a Peace Ambassador with 23 delegates from District 3450.  During the Forum, they have workshops and plenary sessions, such as Workshop:Peace Through Aloha,  which used natural resources as teaching materials to raise students’ awareness of conservation.  The Keynote Speaker of the dinner was Aung San Suu Kyi, who raised two important messages.  First that Democracy is the foundation of human rights; and secondly, that education is the foundation for a better world. 

At the end, Jenny noted that the Forum was a platform to meet new generations and Rotarians.  She also learned that peace can be shared, respect is always the first step toward achieving peace, and that promoting peace is not a political issue.

We collected HK$900 from the raffle and fines; Jenny helped draw the raffle prize and Rtn Chris won a bottle of black truffle olive oil.
