A big party on April 23, 2005 – CCA Spring Dinner
CCA’s Spring Dinner was held at The Ballroom at Penthouse, Hotel Miramar, No.118-130 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon on April 23, 2005. It was attended by 230 guests, members and friends, thanks to the hard work of the Organizing Committee. We had a night of fun, games and dance and the good opportunity of mixing with each other.
The following is an excerpt of the speech made by Spencer Lee at the dinner :
“Mr. Campbell, Members, Guests and friends,
This is the 18th Annual Dinner of CCA. 18 is a magic age. A person has come of age at 18 and has the right to vote.
CCA has come of age with its participation in the promotion of Canadian education for the benefit of the community as a whole in the role it played in the establishment of The Canadian International School of Hong Kong.
Tonight, we are lucky to have Mr. Raymond Chan and Mrs. Shirley Chan of IDT with us. They are the ones who donated the first seed money to start CDNIS.
This is also perhaps an opportune time to invite your support for fund-raising events, to be organized by CCA in conjunction with the School and other Canadian organizations in Hong Kong, where possible, to establish scholarships for local and/or overseas students, especially students from China, to attend CDNIS.
I understand that a former Chairman of CCA, Dennis Chan, has made a pledge to kick-off the initiative, and hopefully, there will be more to come.
Have fun and enjoy the rest of the evening
