Dr Kok Fu Loon was installed as the 85th president of Rotary Club of Ipoh for the year 2015/2016 during a dinner held at the Excelsior Hotel on Sunday, July 12. District Governor, Lady Siti Subaidah Adil was the guest of honour.
A mathematician and an expert of mnemonic techniques, Dr Kok was inducted into the Club in 2003. The graduate from King’s College, London said in his speech that his main project is a Mnemonic Techniques ‘O Level’ course for Form 4 and 5 students of the five sponsored Interact Clubs from Main Convent, Anderson, Yuk Choy, Raja Perempuan School and Perak Girls Secondary School, respectively.
“My second priority is membership development,” he added.
Immediate past president, Gavin Tang Cheng Loong brought guests down the memory lane via pictures of the past year in review.
“I wish to thank all those who had supported me and had contributed, in one way or another, to the club during my tenure as president. Dr Kok, as I step off the limelight, the baton is now in your hands,” he enthused amidst cheers from an approving audience.
