2016 brought many changes, Hong Kong has a new Consul General from Canada and CCA has a new Board of Executive Committee Members. On Jan 18 2017, the Board hosted a dinner at the Hong Kong Jockey Club Trophy Room in honor of Consul General Mr. Jeff Nankivell and Mrs. Alison Nankivell. It was a delightful evening where we all got to know a little bit more about each other. We found out that Mr. Nankivell is a more fluent speaker of Putonghua than most of us and we promised that his Cantonese would soon match up if he joins us play badminton regulary. The Chairperson, Gloria Choy presented Mr. Nankivell an old book about old Hong Kong written and published in 1931; and for Mrs. Nankivell, a book of photos of Hong Kong in the 1950’s. They say pictures are worth more than a thousand words, after looking through this, Mrs. Nankivell will have a lot of information on Hong Kong.
