May 21, 2023 HKUAAO Victoria Day Spring Hike (Rouge Valley) and Dinner

On Sunday, May 21, 2023, a remarkable turnout of over 100 participants gathered to embark on a 2-hour loop hike in Rouge Valley. The enchanting forest trails beckoned us to explore and discover the great biodiversity of the largest urban park in North America.

The day began with the arrival of eager hikers, including fellows of new alumni who have recently relocated to Ontario. We were thrilled to see such a large group ready for adventure. The trail led us through picturesque landscapes, where the fragrant scent of Spring filled the air. While enjoying the great outdoors, our alumni took advantage of the opportunity to reconnect and socialize with one another. Friendships were strengthened, and new bonds were formed amidst the breathtaking surroundings. We gathered for group photos to capture the excitement and camaraderie.

Following the hike, we upheld our cherished tradition by hosting a multi-course dinner party at SamWoo BBQ Restaurant in Scarborough. The vibrant atmosphere was palpable as our energetic group occupied 7+ tables, creating a lively ambiance filled with laughter and camaraderie. The dinner provided the perfect conclusion to an eventful day.

We express our heartfelt appreciation to Hannah Cheung, Tim Cheng and Raymond Leung, and all the organizers who dedicated their time and efforts to ensure the success of this hike. Their commitment and hard work contributed immensely to creating a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants. We are grateful to everyone who participated and made this event a remarkable experience.
