OUR MAY MEETING WILL BE DATE:
SUNDAY 24 MAY 2015
TIME: 12:30 P.M.
VENUE: ROTORUA ARTS VILLAGE, ( 1240 Hinemaru Street)
This month is A Special Event. We have invited the nine Mandarin Language Assistants to join us. We will have a special lunch to welcome them to Rotorua. It will be mainly a social time but hopefully they will introduce themselves and tell us a little bit about themselves. All nine have accepted the invitation. You do not have to worry about communication because they all speak very good English. So come and enjoy the afternoon and for those of you trying to learn Mandarin you can have a practice. We do ask that you please let us know if you will be attending for catering purposes. You do not have to bring a plate for sharing. Just bring yourself and enjoy. RVSP to: Norma Millard <[email protected]> ph. 348-2110 or Brenda Lee [email protected] ph. 332-5731
A future meeting will include Laytee George and her Student Ambassadors who have recently visited Nanchang. The date for this has not been confirmed.
Prominent Persons and Leaders Tour this year will only consist of 5 representatives from all branches. It will be a week long trip which will include a visit to Anguo, where the hospital there continues to commemorate Kathleen Hall and the current He Ming Qing scholarship is being implemented as a community health project. The tour will also include activities that provides an introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture and general health delivery in China. It will also include a visit to nearby Beijing as well as a brief stop in Shanghai. They expect to have some hospital visits and have one or two lectures on the Chinese approach to health care. It will be held most likely October 11 – 17th. Rotorua intends to put names forward for this tour.
