14 October 2016 1,545 views No Comment

In this October message, let me highlight activities in the month of September and to inform you the planned activities in the month of November. 

The Action for Happiness course, which is a Community Service Project our club organized jointly with Action for Happiness UK, had its first session successfully launched on 16 September in the multipurpose room at the Foundation of Rotary Clubs (S) Ltd (FRCS). There were all together 29 participants at the first session, including the organizing chair PP Vicky Soo, the facilitator, CP Chew Ban Seng, and of course myself, the understudy. Two more sessions followed on 23 and 30 September respectively. This course will have 8 sessions and the last session will be on 4 November. We will conduct a graduation session on 10 November.

On 4 September, we had a fun and entertaining workshop to help Rotarians and anyone from the public to learn the skill of ventriloquism and magic tricks. This is a Community Project organized by our club and Family of Rotary. The support of the Salvation Army was instrumental in the success of this workshop. PP James Tian from the Salvation Army deserved a big thank you from all of us. A big thank you.

Encouraged by the overwhelming support, another workshop, in Mandarin & English this time, will be held on 6 November, at the Multipurpose Room at FRCS.

To observe the World Glaucoma Week in pursuance of Rotary District 3310 program in Avoidable Blindness, our club had a discussion on 1 October, with PP John Tan of RC Tanjong Pagar, who is coordinating the World Glaucoma Week 2017, to organize activities such as eye-screening in partnership with SNEC, special speaking slot for the specialists speakers at the World Speech Day in YMCA, and live streaming of the speeches over the RingTV platform. CP Chew Ban Seng, PP Vicky Soo, PP Tan May Yan, PE Richard Ong, Rotarian Zwen Chua and myself were at the discussion. We look forward to an exciting month in March 2017, when all these will happen.

Together, let’s live up to this Rotary Theme of ROTARY SERVING HUMANITY.

President Ching Kwock Wing
Rotary E-Club of 3310
