A fabulous AGM last night celebrating a wonderful year together, approving funding of HK$120,000 for local charities, celebrating our members and their dedication, thanking our Council of 2016/17 and welcoming our new Council of 2017/18.
The outgoing Council of 2016/17 put together a full program of social and community events and delivered this brand new whizzy website to us. A special thanks to our outgoing President, Becca, to our Treasurer of the past THREE years, Telina, and Angela, one of our social secretaries who all stood down from their positions.
Congratulations to our Member of the Year, Lina, as voted by the outgoing Council Lina has continued to be a huge support to the council, attends many social and Community events - and is always keen to lend a hand whenever needed.
We also recognised Sharon, Sue, Karen and Diane for everything they have done this year - from Crossroads coordination, to weekly Crossroads visits, to organising hikes for members.
This year, three of our long standing members, all of whom have served on Council for many years, will be leaving Hong Kong. We honoured their years of friendship and service with Honorary Lifetime Member awards and wish them all the very best on their new adventures (and will miss them a great deal.)
Congratulations to Laura, Sharon and Claire.
The new Council of 2017/18 formed and we are delighted to welcome Fiona back as President. She is joined by Vice President - Patty, Treasurer - Tasha, Secretary - Clare, Membership Secretary - Emma, Community Coordinators Mary & Karla, Webmaster - Eleanor and Social Secretaries Emily and Louise.
There is a lot to look forward to in 2018 - as Ladies Circle Hong Kong will celebrate our 50th Anniversary. The new Council are going to be very busy indeed - so watch this space and join us !!
