President’s Message for December 2016

7 December 2016 2,234 views No Comment

This December, I would like to first and foremost send my season’s greetings and wish one and all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 

 The physical meeting this month will have special meaning as it is also our Annual General Meeting. New Club President, President-elect, Secretary and Treasurer, together with a new set of Board of Directors for the term 2017-2018 will be elected at the AGM. THEREFORE, ALL MEMBERS ARE URGED TO COME FOR THIS SPECIAL PHYSICAL MEETING.  

To observe the World Glaucoma Week in pursuance of Rotary District 3310 programme in Prevention of Blindness, our club had another discussion on 26 November, with PP John Tan of Rotary Club of Tanjong Pagar, who is coordinating the World Glaucoma Week, to firm up our activities such as eye-screening, special speaking slots for specialist speakers at the World Speech Day in YMCA of Singapore, and live streaming of the speeches over Rings.TV platform. CP Chew Ban Seng, PP Vicky Soo, PE Richard Ong, Noel Sinco, teacher advisor to our Rotaractors at ITE College East, and myself were at the discussion. We look forward to an exciting month in March 2017, when all these will happen.

On 20 December, our club, together with Namaste World Foundation, is hosting a Christmas Fellowship celebration dinner event, to raise fund for our Gift of Sight Project – Nepal 2017. We are looking for only 200 diners (maximum) at S$50 per person. The proceeds and donations received will go to sponsor cataract eye surgery for those in Nepal who desperately need the surgery but could ill afford to. Anyone who wishes to make a donation could contact PE Richard Ong. Sponsorship for one eye operation is S$150. 

 A few members of our club, led by Rotarian Zwen Chua, will make a trip to Nepal toward the end of December to deliver relief supplies to victims of the earth quake disaster. 

Together, let’s live up to the Rotary Theme: ROTARY SERVING HUMANITY.

 

Ching Kwock Wing
President 2016-2017 
Rotary E-Club of 3310
