On October 7 -9, The Rotary Club of Taipei led by Mr. Andy Malanga, the 2021-22 president of the Rotary Club, went south to Mudan Township, Pingtung County the southernmost tip of Taiwan. The entourage included Professor Hwa Kuoyuan, Dr. William Choi, and Chairman Lin Junhong, Mr. Tomas Lutovsky and others.  We were received by Secretary Tsai Chongren.  Later that day and the next the entourage met indigenous people from that area.
 
 
 
Dr. T. F. Chen is a painter, writer, philosopher, visionary, and initiator of "Neo-Iconography" in painting. 
Born in Taiwan and educated in France, Dr. Chen was the 1st Asian scholar to earn a Ph. D in Art History from La Sorbonne, where he established “Five-Dimensional World Culture” in theory (1969) and initiated “Neo-Iconography” in painting
 
Dr. Chen presented the extent of his artwork and explained his inspiration.
Neo-Iconography is a daring new form of communication. It unites East and West, past and present, by organizing and combining familiar “icons” in unfamiliar ways.
Like a passionate art collector, Dr. Chen assembles images he treasures and places them together an eclectic composition, which may be startling, puzzling, joyful, sorrowful or humorous.
“Neo-I” is a daring form of art because it challenges both the artist and the viewer to accept new meanings for established images. Each painting has a visual impact with a philosophical underpinning.
 
The objective of our project is to establish well equipped dental centers in two rural locations Namobuddha and Ghodaghodi.
Our aim is to increase the overall number of patients visiting the dental care center and to ensure that the dental care unit is full of strong professional personnel.
The Target Outcome is to provide services to 2,500 patients per year plus 3,000 students.
 
On July 2nd 2021 the Rotary Club of Taipei conducted the installation of the new team, led by President Andy!
 
We had a large virtual audience which demonstrated that the unshakable spirit of Rotarians will not be diminished by these troubled times of pandemic. It is precisely this Rotarian resilience . . . this ability to adapt and continue with our service, even in the face of adversity, that makes us all to be so very proud to be a Rotarian.
 
P Andy measured the challenges of our tasks ahead while expressing the confidence in the team and recognizing the success of the years past: 
"I am confident because IPP Philip and his team have left me a Rotary Club that is functioning like a well-tuned engine.  Our accounting practices are balanced and more streamlined, our membership has grown enormously, our service projects have been fine-tuned and this is due to IPP Philip’s care, diligence, and stewardship . . and mostly, this is due to his leadership. Thank you IPP Philip.  I am truly grateful. The other reason I am comforted is because I have a team of expert and dedicated Past Presidents and fellow Rotarians who will advise me, prop me up, and ensure my success.  For my success is the club’s success.  I’m ready to jump out that proverbial “door” as long as I know you, my 2021-22 team . . . That you, my Past Presidents, and fellow Rotarians are there to catch me."
 
P Andy encouraged us all to continue to be as true Rotarians, people of action": "I learned that a key strength of Rotary is that we are “movers and shakers.”  We are a network of diverse and accomplished professionals and “people of action.”  Our action is realized through service. I hope I can be a role model and a “person of action.”
 
 
 
Members of RCT want to express our deep appreciation and thankfulness to our beloved IPP Philip Liang, for leading our club to rejuvenate in the Rotary year 2020~21, which will remain in our good memory for long.
 
IPP Philip is a Rotarian with seniority, yet ready to adopt new ideas. He is a well educated person, full of experience and wisdom, willing to dedicate his time and personal financial resources to serve the club, the members and communities globally. During this Rotary year, we encountered and suffered a major epidemic in history, but our fellowship and enthusiasm for service had not been affected at all. Our membership number had a net growth of 18.5% or 12 persons, our fundraising achieved the budgeted target, our service projects domestically and globally had accomplished more than what we planned.
 
In addition to his leadership, this year's success is also attributed to his good use of people. He appointed a secretary, PP Building, who is a senior, and experienced Rotarian, willing to contribute his efforts and time, to manage the heavy club business. Philip also appointed a club treasurer, famous accountant graduated from overseas university, to handle financial management, so that the Rotary Club's working capital flow was sufficient, and the service was carried out even better than the predetermined plans without any financial difficulties. We are also very grateful to his secretary PP Building, Club Treasurer Aaron Wu, and his entire team and committees for their unrelenting cooperation in club affairs and various services.
 
Thank you all, for a wonderful year in Rotary which will be remembered for a long long time.
