Club of Hong Kong
Honorary Members Month
We were fortunate to have 2 of our Honorary Members to come to talk to us in November. Professor Samuel Leong, , co-founder of the UNESCO Glocal Peace Centre, spoke to us on the topic of “Glocalizing Culture for Peace on 5th November. To achieve global peace, we must start locally. A very timely reminder that we must keep peace within ourselves amid all the protesting in Hong Kong if we want the violence to eventually stop.
He was followed by Mr. Henry Litton, former judge at the Court of Final Appeal, on the topic “Is the Hong Kong Community Mesmerized by Slogans?” on 19th November. Both speakers boosted our attendance. The lunch with Professor Leong had 4 tables and that with Mr. Henry Litton even had 8 tables, forcing us to change the venue to the Hong Kong Club as the Bankers Club could not give us enough space.
A summary of their speeches can be read in the President’s Blog section on the Rotary Club of Hong Kong website (https://www.rcohk.org).
The Red Box was the main beneficiary of the increase in attendance. Mr Litton even offered to match the collections in his event on a one top one basis (up to HK$6,000). We collected around HK$9,000 and therefore together with Mr. Litton’s donation, we raised HK$15,000 from the event for our charity services.
