A heartwarming and impassioned speech by our Guest of Honour, Ms Low Yen Ling, Minister of State, Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth & Ministry of Trade and Industry, at the installation of the 88th President James Lee & Board Members of the Rotary Club of Singapore on 25th June 2022, was a fitting close to the successful fund-raising dinner event for our Major Project for the year.

Earlier in the evening, RCS incoming President James Lee called on the collective effort of every individual in the club to use their resources and expertise to do good locally and overseas to make the club impactful to the communities it serves.





In the fundraising segment led by VP Tom Wolf, the Rotary Club of Singapore raised a total of $500,000(half of which is from a 1 to 1 matching by the Tote Board) for FootballPlus (https://www.footballplus.org/) for two Seven-A-Side fields at 10 Kwong Avenue and for their programmes ‘Champions Unlimited’ and ‘Stay in the Game’.

In the evening’s finale, MOS Low commended the Rotary Club of Singapore for its efforts in many local projects, such as Rotary Halal Kitchen for Willing Hearts providing 15,000 free meals daily and Share-a-Pot project to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on the physical, mental and social frailty of vulnerable people. She also commended the club’s effort in adopting Alexandra Village Food Centre (AVFC) to help the hawkers develop economic resilience through a digital group buy solution at low delivery costs and also in setting up an Interact Club with Yishun Health and NCID for youths to advocate for public health. She particularly pointed out the club’s guidance through President James Lee for Bukit Gombak EAGLES Interact Club to develop them in leadership and serve the Bukit Gombak community.

MOS Low concluded by wishing President James Lee, the fellow Board members, and all Rotarians in the Rotary Club of Singapore every success in achieving the vision for the Rotary Year 2022 to 2023 and beyond.
