Dear fellow Rotarians,

Being much saddened, I am here to deliver the news that our Past District Governor George Choa passed away peacefully on 20 September. 

PDG George was President of the Rotary Club of Hong Kong in 1971-1972; our Governor in Rotary year 1979-1980. During his Governorship, a scheme was established through Rotary International which brought volunteer physicians and dentists to provide health care in the Vietnamese refugee camps in Hong Kong.  Being a humanitarian who had given long service in many and several ways to various segments of our society, PDG George was also awarded “The Most Respectable Rotarian” by Past RI President Cliff Dochterman (in the capacity of Personal Representative to RI President Richard King) at our 42nd District Conference in 2002.

We shall all miss PDG George and he will always be dearly remembered.

Yours in Rotary,

Eugene
