Sep. 29, 2001 Joint University Function – Fall colour cruise
It was a beautiful weekend in fall, a perfect day to cruise and to enjoy some sun. HKUAAO co-hosted this event with four other university alumni associations (Chinese University, Baptist, Polytechnic and Ling Nam). Over 180 people were on board the “Serendipity Princess”. Departing from Port Severen, the journey was never short of beautiful scenery. Hot meals were served at very reasonable prices. After the cruise, we then shared lots of fun and laughter in the games hosted in turn by each university alumni association. It was a great opportunity to meet old friends and new ones. Credit goes to the organizers for making this happen and we look forward to a similar event in the future!
It started off with a dinner gathering on June 30th with guests and alumni from Ontario and across North America, i.e. B.C., New York, North and South California. We shared lots of laughter and fond memories. Presidents and representatives from the respective chapters introduced their activities and then exchanged souvenirs.
