Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Holidays to all members and Victorians! May the Year of the Goat bring all of us great joy, wealth and health all year round. VIOBA has hit the ground running in 2015 with the launch of the Victorious Newsletter (available for download at the VIOBA Facebook page) and the Board of Governors’ Luncheon held on January 17, 2015 at the newly opened Victorious Café at the Clubhouse. 

Annual Board of Governors’ Lunch 2015

This year, the Luncheon coincides with the opening of Victorious Cafe; a new cafe operating at the VIOBA Clubhouse. Victorious has taken the arduous task of refurbishing the Clubhouse, adding a new layer of paint, cleaning the Clubhouse and bringing a fresh and modern feel to the historical building. The results are in the pictures below and speaks volumes of the effort put in by Victorious team. The food, as the pictures will also show you, will satisfy many a Victorian looking for a quick bite to eat whether dinner or lunch. 

The BOG Luncheon was held on Saturday, 17.01.2015 and was attended by luminaries such as Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, Tan Sri M Jegathesan, Dato' Ronald McCoy, Datin Nawal of JPWP; to name only but a few. 

After the opening remarks by the President, Mr KC Kwek, lunch was served. Lunch consisted of Briyani, Ayam Masak Merah, Beef Rendang, Vegetables, various snacks and bites, coffee, tea, and juices. During the Opening Remarks, the President listed out the events for the remaining term; event of which were scribbled on the side-white-boards of which pictures are below. Do take note of the dates and the events there! 

Year End Message

 

We all have the tendency to review events, achievements and perhaps to think of lost opportunities and what the New Year would bring. At VIOBA we look back to a reasonably good year and look forward to new challenges in 2015. We are issuing a newsletter called Victorious available now in electronic format, feel free to share it with other Victorians. Our relationship with the school is improving. We are now able to use certain school facilities and we are next planning for members to use the swimming pool on weekends. In return we will have to help with the revival of the Swimming and Life Savers Club. Please get in touch if you have ideas on this.
