District Leader Address – Last Mile

Dr Yvonne Leong

Dear Esteemed Members,

As we are fast approaching the end of our highly successful term, how would you like to be recognized and remembered as we walk down the memory lane? I am sure many of you have great stories to tell and share with the rest of the community. We still have some time left for us to bring a glorious closure to our term, and as such, we should take this opportunity to use the remaining of our tenure to close the term with a big bang, only with you all we can achieve this remarkable feat… and I like to call upon all of you to give your best to cross the finishing line.

Term 2019-2020 has been a very intriguing year couple with so many events affecting each of our lives in many ways, but yet we all survive and manage to bring the best out of each and every one of us. In spite of the global pandemic, we have achieved quite a number of successes, especially you have transitioned all the face to face meetings & contests to online modes. You have shown your resilience to strive, your persistence to perform in these new ways of meetings and your insistence for the highest quality for all our events.

Thank you for your effort to make a difference in others life, thank you for your participation to make District 102 more vibrant, thank you for your support to bring District 102 to another height. Meanwhile, stay safe and enjoy this last mile. We will meet for appreciation and celebration soon!
