President Brian Anderson spoke about the Rotary Club of Royal Hua Hin and its recent community service projects especially the new Rotary Education Centre to be constructed at Ban Nong Khon School in Hua Hin. He proudly conveyed, “Our Multi-Club Family & Friends Night is always a much anticipated event for international fellowship attracting a multitude of Rotarians and guests from Thailand and abroad. It started off in 2012 as a well-attended dinner meeting hosting the 1st Annual Delegation Visit by the Rotary Club of Bangkok South as well as Rotarians of 16 Rotary Clubs from around the world who ventured to Hua Hin immediately after attending the Rotary International Convention in Bangkok.”
The student Rotaract Clubs of Stamford International University and Webster University were also present en masse to celebrate their annual Club Officer Installations and were presented with Rotaract badges by Rotary Club President Brian Anderson, President-Elect Napa Keawtem and Rotarian Benjamas Uamsa-ard, who chairs the Club Youth Service Committee. Both Rotaract Clubs gave presentations on the community service projects they had been involved in as well as future plans for service.
