Rotary Club of Taipei and the family of PP Dale wish to express heartfelt thanks to all who participated / assisted in the memorial service to celebrate the life of PP Dale. Your presence and support to the family is highly appreciated.

It was hard to bid farewell to someone who has touched the hearts of so many lives. PP Dale shall live long in the memory of us all!

 

From May 30th to June 1st, 2019, the RCT welcomed in Taipei a group of 28 kids from Tung-Shih Elementary School of Chiayi with 6 teachers accompanying them. These kids are living in underprivileged condition, and as part of the mission of the RI, the Club was proud to make this happen. 

Kids got training sessions on AI and VR with some professionals in that field, and also with the help of Taipei Municipal Yongchun Senior High School (台北市立永春高中). They also received training from Carrefour Taipei, and the restaurant La Mole, so that there were given exposure to various fields. The purpose was to open their mind on real-life industry and work. We hope this kind of event is beneficial to those kids coming from rural areas. 

Special thanks to the principal and teachers of Tung-Shih Elementary School of Chiayi, the Taipei Municipal Yongchun Senior High School, Carrefour Taiwan, Miramar Entertainment Park, Just Eat restaurant, and all Rotarians who have kindly sponsored the event (David Hall, PP Roadrunner – Coco Ichibanya -, Alex – La Mole restaurant) and also who have given of their time to come to the event. Thanks to Claudine Kuo also (Vendome’s firm) for her coordination of the whole event.
 
 
 
 
 
 
On May 10, we had a big group of 23 including President Mark Wang from our sister club RC Singapore visiting the National Palace Museum for the Maestro Chang Dai-Chien’s Art 張大千120歲誕辰紀念大展.  It was such a great honor to have Ms. Tseng Shu-Yun 曾淑芸 as our docent again.
 
We started with the painting and calligraphy of Maestro’s early years and works of his family, teachers and friends. Ms. Tseng shared some interesting stories of Chang’s imitation of ancient works, then explained the styles and differences between works by Chang and those ancient masters.
Ms. Tseng also led us to Chang’s colorful Buddhist art works inspired by the wall paintings in Dunhuang 敦煌 caves and explained their amazing details.
 
We then switched to the Chang’s stunning Masterpieces in ink and color on lotus and landscape.  We were all amazed by the “trademark” of Chang’s art on “splashed color” skills. Enlightened by Ms. Tseng we were able to tell the big change of Chang’s composition on paintings after his eye disease.
 
After this 100 minutes tour, we extended our heart-felt thanks to Ms. Tseng for her dedicated service with a special gift set from Rtn Nancy’s tea shop. With a background in history profession at NTU, Ms. Tseng dedicated 20 years of voluntary service in the National Palace Museum as a docent. It was truly an enjoyable and informative museum tour!
