Our Club was honoured to host our District Governor Datuk Lee, his lovely wife Naomi and Assistant Governor Tan at our Club meeting on Friday 15 September at the Singapore Swimming Club.

Members distributed 1200 loaves of bread donated by our Club to our seniors at the Active Aging Carnival in promotion of healthy lifestyles for our Pioneer Generation.
Guest of Honour MP Gan Thiam Poh stopped by our distribution booth to visit and express gratitude for our support of this event and our weekly ‘Loaves of Love’ project at Teck Ghee CC.
We are thrilled to announce that this week we will increase our weekly donation to 300 residents of Teck Ghee receiving bread and foodstuffs delivered by our Club members and members of our ITE Rotaract Club.
Our monthly meeting schedule will differ slightly from our usual “first and third Friday of the month” routine due to the public holiday on Friday 1 September. This month, we will hold our “first of the month” meeting on Friday, 8 September and are excited to host our District Governor on 15 September. Please make note on your calendar.
An important part of our Club’s calendar is our monthly fellowship dinner, which provides an opportunity for our members to gather informally in addition to our semi-monthly lunch meetings. This month’s dinner was held on Friday 25 August at the Grand Shanghai Restaurant.
Happy Birthday RCSN!

In addition to our community service projects and weekly bread distribution, an important part of our monthly calendar is fellowship. We gathered this month at Putien at Ion Orchard for a fun evening with our club members.
