Our Board of Directors will meet at ITE on Friday 6 October prior to the opening ceremony of Children’s Day with our Rotaractors. Therefore, we will host our usual “first and third Friday” meetings at the Swimming Club on Friday the 13 and 20th this month. Our fellowship dinner will take place during the last week and the venue and date will be confirmed soon.
Our Club held our annual Mooncake Festival fellowship dinner at the home of PP David See on Saturday 30 September. Thanks David and Grace for hosting us at the wonderful event!
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. Following a business meeting with our Club leadership, the DG participated in our weekly meeting and helped us welcome our newest member, David Poh, to the Rotary family.
Many of our spouses were able to join as well to give a “Singapore North” welcome to Naomi and to enjoy a wonderful lunch meeting.
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.
The Rotary Club of Singapore North celebrated the thirty fifth anniversary of our club charter on Saturday evening 12 August at the Carlton Hotel. It was festive evening of fellowship and celebration of our Club’s accomplishments over the past year.
Guest of Honor for the evening was Mr. Gerald Minjoot.
Our sister Club, Taksin Dhonburi of Bangkok, was represented by a dozen members and family. Club president Chavipa is seen here exchanging gifts with our club President Engle.
We look forward to many more years of active service to our community!
Our next major club function will be our Anniversary Dinner on 12 August at the Carleton Hotel – hope to see some of you there!
