First Meeting of the New Rotary Year

We had a well-attended first meeting of the Rotary year. In addition to discussing upcoming service and fellowship events, we enjoyed hosting Visiting Rotarian John Cameron of the Rotary Club of Norfolk Virginia (USA). John is a university history professor who is travelling in Asia with his son. We enjoyed his fellowship and hope he makes a return visit!

Singapore Tree Planting Project

This year, Rotary International President Ian Riseley challenged all Rotarians to plant a tree as a symbol of RI’s commitment to our environment. The clubs of Singapore organised a tree planting activity on Saturday 9 June in Bintan, Indonesia. 26 clubs participated and members of our club travelled over to plant the 15 trees donated by club members. We are proud to report that our members contributed the second highest number of trees of any of the participating clubs!

The event provided not only an opportunity for us to support Rotary International ‘s environmental initiative but also provided a great opportunity for us to share fellowship with over 100 Rotarians from the 26 clubs.
