Lions Club George Town Mutiara Super 22nd Charter Anniversary
held on 15 May 2010 at Eastin Hotel, Penang
attended by
Incoming President Lynda Yeng and Jessie Ng.
Incoming President Lynda and Jessie with their respective spouse took the opportunity for a holiday up north and headed to Penang on Friday May 14, 2010. We managed to meet up with Lion Wang Chiew Ngo who graciously hosted a Szechuan lunch at Auto City and caught-up on the latest development of herself and Club activities. After lunch she showed us around Auto City and we bidded farewell around 3 pm.

Crossing the bridge, we headed to Snake Temple and thereafter checked into Berjaya Georgetown Hotel & rested before the Fellowship Dinner hosted by LC GTM at The Hainanese Restaurant, 1926 Heritage Hotel, Jalan Burmah. The long & tricky Jalan Burmah with split roads kept us circling almost 30 mins, however, thanks to CP Lion Danny who came to our rescue. We shared a table with 1st VDG-elect Shawn Lee and they had good turnout of more than 40 pax including Lions from Kota Budaya, KL Capital, some Penang Lions, PJ Metro and us. After dinner, there was a Birthday Celebration for all May Lions namely Lion Lily Teoh and Lion Danny Lim of LC GTM (both on 13/5) Lion Jessie Ng of PJ Mutiara (14/5) and Lion Densonne Yap of Kota Budaya (30/5) before we called it for the day, but the KB Lions fellowship till wee hours of the morning.
