Dear Members,

It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly a year since this General Committee took office last June. We are excited to announce that the Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held on Sunday, 9 June 2024, at the Banquet Hall. To make this event even more special, the first 100 voting members who register for the AGM before 10:00am will receive a premium bath towel. This is to ensure that we have enough members present to meet the quorum, avoiding the additional costs associated with postponing the proceedings to the following week. The General Committee is proposing some amendments to the Club’s Constitution, and we have received a few thought-provoking resolutions. We encourage you to come, participate, and have your views heard.

On Wednesday, 15 May 2024, the Club welcomed 72 new members, including 18 membership transfers. This trend of membership transfers is growing, with more senior members opting to transfer their membership to their children or grandchildren. This practice is very healthy as it promotes the internal growth of membership. To date, we have a total of 430 such membership transfers.

April and May were filled with Hari Raya-themed events at the Club. The Malam Irama & Joget was a hit, with members showing off their joget skills on the dance floor of The Orchid. The Mahjong Section also hosted a special 3-kaki Mahjong Competition and Raya Celebration on 28 April. Not to be outdone, the Tennis Section held their Raya Social on 27 April with a hearty breakfast before an enjoyable game of tennis.

Mother’s Day was celebrated with a special luncheon on 12 May. You can see the happy and contented faces of many mothers on Page 11 of this Newsletter.

After a five-year hiatus, partly due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Club organized the Family Carnival on 25 and 26 May. The event was filled with food, fun, and games. It was heartwarming to see many tired but happy faces of the young ones after their swimming and arcade games. A tennis clinic was also held, which saw the enthusiastic participation of 40 children. At the petting zoo of many exotic animals, the young meerkat was a favorite. The pony rides were a hit with the children. The two days were tiring but fun-filled, ending with open-air dining and The Nightbirds playing at the Lawn in the evening. The General Committee plans to make the Family Carnival an annual event.

Our sports sections have been very active, hosting inter-club friendly matches and social events. The Age-Group Swimming Championship took place on 12 May, with over 30 young participants enjoying a day at the Children’s Pool.

Our staff had an enjoyable annual party on 30 April 2024 in Melaka, themed “Night of the Stars,” with many of them dressed in their finest. Awards were given out to four staff members for completing 20 years of service and two staff members for completing 10 years of service. It was a night to remember!

Many members have inquired about the progress of the proposed repairs to the roof leaks at the Main Building and the upgrading of the changing rooms at the Multi-Purpose Hall. We are currently evaluating bids from a tender exercise. Regarding the repairs and upgrading of the Children’s Swimming Pool, the tender process is ongoing. The General Committee expects to have a more definite timeline for completion within the next month. We will keep members updated.

Until the next issue, the General Committee and I wish all our members Selamat Hari Raya Aidiladha and God bless us all with good health and happiness.

Cheers!
