Our Late President Lion Anthony Lee Kin On passed away peacefully on Dec 9, 2009. He has just celebrated his 50th Birthday on December 4, 1959. To all of us "He is not gone, He is just away. With a cheery smile and the wave of hand, He has wandered into an unknown land."
All our club members missed him alot especially with his witty remarks and unlimited energy. His passion for Lionism has never waver since he joined our club 12 years ago. On January 10, 2010 during the Club 46th Charter Anniversary, International Director, Hajjah Ellis Suriyati read a tribute and presented a President Award and pin posthumously to his wife, Ms Serena.
Our Club 1st Vice President Lion Oh Aik Kim took over the Club President with effect from January 2010. President Oh has great respect for Late President Anthony and he will continue the good job and outstanding projects as identified by the Late President.
