THE Big Day the our members have been waiting for, more than six months in making, Hong Kong Toastmasters Club’s 60th Anniversary Dinner was held in November!
School Assembly on the 39th Floor
We have one regular meeting in November, two weeks prior to our big day. Themed “School Days”, we had our “School Assembly” on 39F of L’Hotel. The venue offered a stunning view of Happy Valley and the world famous Victoria Harbour. Our members were certainly not distracted by the views, as they were focusing on the speeches from our three advanced speakers: Ben Fung, Ai Ai Ong and Andrew Yeung; who were evaluated by our seasoned evaluators Eng Wah Lim, Rita Tsu and Arthur Ting. Calvin Lee hosted a Table Topics session for the first time. The session was evaluated by Matthew Lee. The busiest men of the night was definitely Paul Wong, who facilitated the night as TME and inducted our new members Charlotte Leung and Jesse Fang in a formal ceremony.
Hong Kong Toastmasters Club 60th Anniversary Dinner
THE BIGGEST Event of our club (and possibly the local Toastmasters community) in this 2014/15 Toastmasters Year, our 60th Anniversary Dinner was successfully held in Causeway Bay on 21 November 2014. We shared this special occasion with over 180 guests from Hong Kong and overseas. Our guests included past and current members of Hong Kong Toastmasters Club, fellow Toastmasters from other clubs in Hong Kong, visitors and guests. The event was a reunion of our past members from the various generations. It was also an opportunity for current Toastmasters to appreciate and honor the past.
Our Past Presidents Arthur Ting and Ai Ai Ong hosted the event professionally. It was an action-packed program with multiple highlights: Toasting from Past Presidents, video footage of a Toastmasters meeting in the 1980s, speech by the “Crazy Four”, Table Topics from 6 Toastmasters Titans.
The event was made possible by the dedicated efforts from our organizing committee led by Matthew Lee, Arthur Ting and Ai Ai Ong. It was a huge success. Visit this link to see highlights from the evening. http://www.toastmasters.org.hk/60th
