Remarks by Charter President Donald Yap (President 1990-91, 1991-92)

 

"Since our club was chartered, it has moved forward a great deal and that is thanks to the members, both old and new. The wish to serve the community has always been strong and this in itself has been a strong catalyst for bonding and fellowship.

 

Our president and other members of the club will cover the recent activities and successes of the club in this website and it only needs me to congratulate them and again confirm of how proud I am to be of this family."
