Annual Dinner 2023
Approximately 70 people participated in the annual dinner this year, which was held on October 15.
Fr. Antoni J. Ucerler, S.J. from Boston College happened to be in town and joined us. Mrs. Lee gave us a short speech and encouraged our alumni to participate more in our events.
Both Fr. Clement Tsui, S.J., Supervisor of Wah Yan Hong Kong and Wah Yan Kowloon and Dr. Davis Chan, Principal of WYHK sent us videos to share their thoughts with us.
We have to congratulate class of 66. They have the highest participation two years in a row. We certainly want to see them back again next year. The evening ended with the lucky draw.
Hope to see you in our next event.
Wah Yan Boys resume activities
After over two years of the pandemic, people here seems to have accepted COVID 19 as part of life. While some people are still very concerned about exposure to the sickness, most have returned to “normal” life. Basically, all pandemic related restrictions for gathering have bee lifted.
The first gathering after the pandemic for the Wah Yan boys was held last weekend. Our president, Andrew, invited some old boys to his house for a barbecue. In all over twenty people, including our brothers from the Kowloon side participated.
There were tons of food, drinks and chats and laughter. We were very excited to see new comers as well as some people we have not met for a very long time.
Andrew said that he would have invited more people but his house can only hold so many. He is thinking about a picnic type gathering for all members. It may not happen this year, but certainly in the plan. Meanwhile, we are considering resuming the annual dinner. A date and venue is to be decided.
