UMAC2 1Dear Fellow Rotarians:

It was a busy and fruitful week. Fortunately, last Friday super typhoon RAMMASUN did not hit Macau directly, so we were able to attend the graduation ceremony for Concordia special school under typhoon signal No.3. From Kindergarten to high school graduated, we saw the significant improvement of the children, without doubt, the love and patience from the teachers were extremely important.

On the same day, 2 outstanding students from our Adopt-A-School - St Paul's School, Ricky and Cherry headed to Manchester city for UK Summer Camp. Our club sponsors them to have cultural exchange for 2 weeks and they will report to us when they return.

Last Saturday our club first vocational visit to University of Macau new campus at Hengqin.

PE Elizabete wrote a nice article which  was published in this wk's  DG weekly newsletter: Pls refer to the  LINK: http://rotary3450.soofwood.com/?p=11052  .

Thanks to fellow Rotarians reminder, my apology to our other two German Rotarians, Wolfram and Thomas. I missed mentioning you in my last weekly update when congratulating  your country as World Cup Champion.

Meeting Highlights:

AG (Assistant Governor) Synthia Chan accompanied by two DAGs (Deputy Assistant Governor) Gordon from RC Macau Central, David from RC Amizade made their 1st AG Visit to our Club. A wonderful informative presentation by AG Synthia about this year's Rotary International strategic direction to focus on our Public Image, engage families, membership development/retention and Rotary Foundation. Moreover, she also introduced the new Rotary Central website and walked us through on how to register and utilize it for club administration and club goals' tracking.

AG Synthia also presented Paul Harris certificate and pin to me. Janet also received Paul Harris +1 pin which I will keep and present to her upon her return from holiday.

APRRC1415 1APRRCphoto 2 Dear Rotarians:

First of all, we congratulate our German Rotarian Mader as their countrymen won the 2014 world cup champion. It was a wonderful performance played by their national team. Congratulations!

In last week, we had our Asia-Pacific Regional Rotaract Conference (APRRC) hosted  Hong Kong which was attended by over 700 rotaractors and district leaders from HK, Macao and around the region.  Rotaract Advisers PP Stella, Elvo and PE Elizabete joined opening ceremony to support our Macau rotaractors. It was so heartwarming to see our young rotaractors having a valuable time connecting to overseas rotaractors, inviting  some to visit Macau after the conference.

Meeting Highlights:

Thank you Alumni PP Jim for joining us again before leaving Malaysia on Friday. He felt that its always nice meeting our old friends here. Rotary Club of Macau made him feel like home.

I would also like to send our warmest well wishes to PP Maneiras' wife who was not feeling well last week. Hope she has a speedy and steady recovery .

As a club president, its my responsibility to give a brief introduction of our club activities. Our community services this year, we celebrate our 15th Christmas party with the mentally handicapped children, dental treatment for the elderly, GuangXi educational project, Macau autism project and Gondola Fundraising project.

A number of heavy- weight speakers will give us speech about specific topics. We will have PDG (Past District Governor) Jones Wong talk about Membership 11th September, 2014, followed by District Peace Chair PP Mitzi Leung share with us about Peace. In October Vocational month, District Vocational chair – PP Silva Yeung will join us too. Specific topic about Autism, we will have Psychiatrist, speech therapist and music therapist telling us their experience with autistic kids.

We do enjoy great fellowship in our club. You are always welcome to bring family to our first social night 31st July, 2014 at Grand Coloane Hotel (before called Westin Hotel) having India Cuisine.

GWAphotoDear Fellow Rotarians:

We had our district installation on July 5 in HK Regal Airport Hotel. It was a great night for me to receive the sash from our IPP KC with Synthia, Elizabete, Florence witnessing this memorable moment together with me. During that night, our new Rotarian Perry Lam was inducted by our District Governor Belinda Yeung, he was one of three to represent the whole district to be pinned by our DG.

A total of HKD 5 million was raised that evening which included all the dinner fees was donated to HK Vocational Training Council (VTC). This organization is the largest vocational education, training and professional develop group in HK. VTC provides valuable training for some 250,000 students each year through a full range of pre-employment and in-service programmes with internationally recognized qualifications. I am certain that this funding will mean a lot to these young people.

Bank of China hosted a Charity Bowling Tournament on last Saturday Jul 6. Aris Tam, our executive secretary, together with other Rotary clubs in Macau formed a team - "Rotary Stars" to join this bowling tournament, we were so closed to get some award. All the money raised will be donated to Macau Deaf Association.

Meeting Highlights

-Last meeting we welcomed PP Jim and KK visiting us from Malaysia and also PP David from Brunei.

-Our speaker was Rotaract Club's Goodwill Ambassador Team reporting about Sri Lanka trip. Two GWA gave a vivid pictorial presentation of their visits to orphanages and charity organizations. Above all, they learned much about the local culture and traditions which were so novel . Like one is not supposed to touch the heads of Sri Lankans so one friendly Lankan Rotaractor put on a wig and let our Rtcs and GWA to touch his head.
