60th Birthday Celebrations Week – Newsletter 1

Dear all classmates (by bcc),

Further to my earlier email in which I have asked you to mark your diary for two important events in Sept., I am writing to invite you to indicate your participation so that the appropriate no. of tables can be booked and food ordered beforehand.

a. The Sept. lunch gathering will be held at noon on Sat. 14/9 at the Moon Koon Rest. in the Happy Valley Racecourse. The table is booked by Peter Lo. We’ll use this occasion to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival and share some moon cakes.  Pl. let me and Peter Lo know by Wed. 11/9 if you are coming; and

b. Camillus Chan Yue Chou of  CA, USA and Bernard Chan Chi Cheung (aka Jesus) of Van., Canada are returning home via HK after a visit to China. The former was present in our last reunion as a stand-up comedian and the latter has been away for decades. To meet and greet them, a room has been booked by Alex Shuen at the Chinese Rest. in the Amenities Building of City U of HK (near the Kowloon Tong MTR Station) for 6:30 pm on Fri. 27/9. Dinner will be served at 7:30 pm. (For those who drive, parking is available at City U. for four hours at a nominal fee.) If you are coming, pl. email me with copy to Alex Shuen before Tues. 24/9. Though Cam. has not yet agreed to do another show for us, if there is a good turnout this time, I don’t think he’ll refuse. So, pl. do come and be ready to have a good laugh.

In both events, you are welcome to discuss and raise any Qs about the upcoming 60th birthday celebrations in Nov. with any member of the Working Group. You are also welcome to inspect the City U. Chinese Rest. where our gala dinner will be held. So, pl. do email me NOW (with copy to Peter and/or Alex too) to join these two events to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival and greet your fellow classmates.

PS — We are looking for a venue to host the Oct. lunch for classmates. If you have a suitable place, pl. let me know. Thanks.
