Rotary Year 2014-15 was very special: the president for Rotary International for that year was RC Taipei’s own Past President, Rtn. Gary Huang. As such, there were added dimensions of recognition of and interest in the Rotary Club of Taipei.

RY2014-15 started early for President Cager (Rtn. Bruce Yang) as he attended the 2014 Rotary Convention in Sydney Australia in June to not just witness PP Gary become RI President Gary Huang but to also receive the Home Club banner denoting RC Taipei as RI Pres. Gary’s home club.

From then on, RY2014-15 witnessed a flurry of events and activities for RC Taipei beginning with the very first Rotary Day in 2014 held on July 5, 2014 on the grounds of the CKS Memorial Hall in Taipei. Fellowship was a key theme for the year and with this in mind there were events and activities such as:

  • Fireside meetings hosted by PPs and Rotarians;
  • Combined Spouse and RCT visits to Hualien (Tzu Chih, Taroko Gorge; Marble factory); Ilan’s Bulau Bulau Aboriginal Village; Shihmen Resevoir; and other events;
  • RCT Charter Anniversary with pre- and post dinners/lunches w/ sister clubs, RC Taipo and RC Macau;
  • District 3480 events (swimming, Assembly, Rotary Knowledge and other seminars);
  • Rotary Flame Run (in support of RI’s End Polio campaign);
  • English Speech Contest 2015 at TES;
  • Beach Cleaning w/ RACT;
  • RACT Rotary contest at 2W; CNY Mongolian BBQ with RACT; RACT Charter Anniversary and Changeovers;
  • Changeover and Charter Anniversaries with our Baby Clubs; Sister Clubs; 1rst Sub-District Clubs; and Other District Clubs (RCT Keelung, RCT North, RCT West, RCT Ta An, RCT Central, RC Kaohsiung, RC Tainan, RC HsinChu, RCT Roma, RC Elite, RC Tin Harbor, RC Tokai, RC New Century, RC Diamond, RC Roundtable, RC Taipo, RC Macau, RC Hualien, RCT Shihmen, RC Taichung-Tatong; RCT Indigenous and others);

and the June 2015 Rotary Convention in Sao Paulo, Brazil signaled the coming close to RY2014-15!
