CORNELL CLUB OF SINGAPORE JANUARY 2014 NEWSLETTER

Dear Alumni and Friends

Once again we have reached that time of the year to review our year past and plan for the year ahead.
Hopefully you have led a fulfilling year with progress in your chosen vocation and
all relationships in good harmony.
Here’s wishing you a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Gong Xi Fa Cai, all in advance.
This wouldn’t be the Cornell Club in Singapore if i wasn’t kiasu (“fear-lose” in hokkien) about all the greetings.

There’s more to be kiasu about at this writing of the newsletter as we catch up with our list of Cornell Cares Events this year (on the last day!)
and look forward to our first Cornell Cares Reunion/Fundraising party in January.
Please hit reply to support both these great causes and kick off the 2014 Horse year with a very good hearted bang.
Looking forward to the mountain of books and seeing a big turnout in January.
Sincerely
Sonia Ong
President
Cornell Club Singapore

Read4Life (www.read-4-life.org), a charity devoted to stopping the cycle of poverty in Southeast Asia caused by illiteracy. All books are welcome.
Reply now with the subject “I pledge my book(s)” (so we know how many to expect to carry, no need to specify what book) and drop off your book(s) on Friday, 10 January 2014 at the Book Drop box, 
outside Amber Residences Function Room, 50 Amber Road (next to Amber Hotel), 4-10pm.
