Welcome by President Renee

Dear Fellow Rotarians, Visitors & Friends,

It is my honour to be here to serve as the President of Kowloon North for 15-16, and thank you very much to Immediate Past President David Bruce who has supported me with his experience and wisdom, which enable me to have the confidence to stand up and work for my dearest Rotarians of Kowloon North.

The Rotary Club of Kowloon North was chartered on 2nd June 1964 and we are amongst one of the Clubs with the longest history in Hong Kong. I am extremely proud to be a member of this Club, learning from the tremendous life experiences of each fellow Rotarians of Kowloon North.

Regarding this year’s theme ‘Be a Gift to the World’, the RI President of 15-16 K. R Ravidran said in a speech earlier this year, “All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become — and Be a Gift to the World,”

We all come from all walks of life, and yet we use our professional knowledge and skills to benefit our community. Each of us is therefore unique gifts to our Club, our community and to the World. We have one year to unleash our potential and turn it into reality, by continuing to work on the signature projects of the Club which we have dedicated tremendous efforts to date. I am deeply convinced that by giving what we have in this year we can all lead our Club to transform the lives of many others.

I sincerely look forward to a year of fulfilment, joy and great fun with everyone in Kowloon North.

Yours in Rotary,

Renee Chan

President 2015-16
