Towards a Green Rotary District - Green Rotary Club (Speaker: PP George)

We had a birthday boy today: PP Martin.  President Adrian presented him a bottle of red wine as a birthday gift.

Our speaker today was PP George Li, who talked about “Towards a Green Rotary District - Green Rotary Club”.  PP George is Chairman of District 3450 Preserve Planet Earth Committee, dedicated to the vital task of promoting environmental initiaves from within Rotary. 

The District’s PPE committee joined with our club to promote the recently launched Sustainable Seafood Ambassador Programme.  Ambassador training was held on 15 Feb, 2014 and teams were sent to promote Sustainable Seafood on 26 & 27 April at Kai Tin Mall.  Our club also conducted a Sustainable Seafood identification programme for Rotarians & Friends during the District Conference earlier this year.  Joining with Aberdeen Kaifong Welfare Association, we had the Inter-school Public Speaking Competition which included training and a competition in March on the topic of sustainable seafood.

Sergeant at Arms Rtn Derek collected HK$1,590 from raffles and fines.  The raffle prize today was a bottle of red wine and the winner was Mr. Ambrose Lam, guest of PP George.  PP Nick donated two camping chair as raffle prizes and the winners were PP George and Rtn David Thomas.
