Message from the Out Going President

The year seems to have passed by so quickly and now my term as President has ended. I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to the Board of Directors, our Members and my family and friends for all their support.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my year as President, having had the opportunity to represent the club at all the District events as well as our District Convention in Penang. These events were full of fun and fellowship and left me with many warm memories.

This year our Club has accomplished a lot. We organised two important projects- the first was Building Fund Charity Dinner held at the Chakri Palace, which raised over six four thousand Ringgit. The other was our fifth annual Fun Run which, I am glad to say, attracted nearly 1,000 participants. I wish to convey my special thanks mainly to Yonne Ong and our newest members Olivia and Rodney and Lalitha for leading the project. Many thanks go to all of our members and supporters as well as our kind donors. Their support and hard work made the event an unqualified success.

We must be reminded that our own Down Syndrome Centre has an annual budget of over 200,000 Ringgit to cover its annual operating costs, so it is important that our club members focus and work together as a team to achieve these fund raising goals.

Why do we join Kiwanis? To serve the children of the world and serve our local community. And in doing so enrich our lives. Alone we can barely achieve much, but as a team we can conquer the world.

I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome and congratulate our newly elected President, Olivia Chin together with her Board of Directors. Olivia, do enjoy your year in office as I have just done and take the club to new level of success.

Kind regards,
Amanda Russell
President 2018-19
