We love drinks drop ins at Ladies Circle Hong Kong - it's an opportunity to mingle and catch up in relaxed surroundings while at the same time as raising funds for our focus charity "Small Group Homes."
On Wednesday evening we were joined by members past and present and friends at an extra special Drinks Drop In at the home of one of our very long standing members. Laura has been such a wonderful presence in our membership and on Council over many years.
Laura is relocating to the UK soon and will be very much missed in our daily lives - but will still be back often and will keep in touch across the miles.
As President I was given the honour of thanking Laura on the night and announcing how much we'd raised (a staggering HK$3,400). I should really have said a little more than just "this is not Goodbye, just a farewell..." I confess to finding it all a bit too emotional (totally rubbish on reflection and I'd give myself a 2 out of 10 !)
It's important to set the record straight I think!....
"Laura, a big thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have been my rock these past few years. Always so supportive and full of encouragement, love and compassion. So dedicated and hard working and with such a level head. You truly embody everything that I take to mean being a true member of Ladies Circle and I will miss you so very much. With much love and thanks to you always."
