subject HKU 1971 - 40th anniversary dinner

Dear BSc 1971 classmates,

The University alumni office has confirmed that the dinner will take place at Loke Yew Hall on 28 June. The cost is $1,800 per person.

It is somewhat expensive, but it is a once-in-10-year event. Also the occasion will be leveraged to secure donations from outsiders to support the installation of 40 pieces of artwork in the new centenary campus. This will add an artistic touch to HKU, helping prevent it from becoming a place with only a focus on money and money and money.

I have booked and paid for two tables to accomodate science alumni.

Could those attending please kindly confirm your attendance with me? You may pay me on the day or send a cheque to me at "5H, Tower 6, Laguna Verde, Hunghom, Kowloon".

The organizer is asking me to offer a short 3-5 minute entertainment programme. Several faculties will do singing by a small group. A band organised by Chan Nam Luk will provide accompaniment.

I vaguely remember that Chow Yiu Wah was a singer. Could you help with the singing, or organising the singing effort?

Subject: 40th anniversary - HKU 1971 & BSc 197

Dear BSc 1971 classmates,

2011 is the 40th anniversary of our graduation.

HKU will organize a dinner to celebrate this event. The date is 28 June. Details are yet to be worked out. Please mark your calendar.

It is an all-faculty dinner at Loke Yew Hall, mostly a fun event. There will be no raffle tickets nor auctions nor any other fund-raising thing at the dinner per se. A couple of enthusiastic alumni will however use the dinner as an excuse to bring donations to HKU.

Regarding the celebration by the BSc class itself, the responses to my previous mail on the subject generally point towards November, and the preference for the excursion out of Hong Kong is Taiwan. I shall work on the ideas further.
