On 14 December 2018, the Law Society Community Relations Committee (“CRC”) hosted a Christmas Gathering for its members and supporters who have rendered significant support towards the work of the CRC and its four working groups.
The event kicked off with remarks by President Melissa Pang, to appreciate the efforts and contributions of the CRC in the past year and encourage members to continually support CRC activities to enhance the coherence with all walks of life. Mr. Philip Wong, Chairman of CRC, also expressed his heartfelt thanks to the member volunteers. The event followed by the update by Chairpersons of the four working groups under CRC on their work plans for 2019. The highlight of the Gathering was the presentation of certificates of appreciation to speakers and writers of "Sing Tao Legal Mailbox" weekly column in recognition of their efforts in 2018. We were glad to have Ms. Loretta Lam, Senior Education Secretary of Po Leung Kuk to attend the event together with 40 participants, and enjoyed the evening with great food and Christmas gifts.
