2024 LaSalle Day / AGM Dinner

The Toronto Chapter held its 2024 Annual General Meeting on La Salle Day on (May 15) at Casa Deluz Banquet Hall (豪門宴) in Scarborough.

Kevin Kwok (88), the current chapter president delivered a concise report on the chapter activities in the past year, and Treasurer Francis Yeung (1971), presented a summary financial report.

In the mid of the dinner, President Kevin Kwok presented the mahjong trophy to Greg Chen (1962). Greg won the overall champion at the annual Louis Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Mahjong Tournament held in March 2024. The annual event was held in memory of Louis Pomeroy (1941), who served on the HKLSCOBA Committee before emigrating to Canada. He was a serving director of the Toronto Chapter before he passed away in early 2011.

The AGM saw a strong turnout, with 82 members in attendance, representing a diverse range of backgrounds within our organization. We were blessed with more than a table of senior old boys from the classes of the 1950s and 1960s.

It was a joyous gathering indeed! Our sincere appreciation to Ambrose Cheung (69), Ken Wong (90), Raymond Dau (91), Michael Kong (94), Chris Fong (1994), Alex Tsoi (16), and Kenny Fong (17) for coordinating the event.

The AGM and dinner event was a valuable opportunity to connect with our members, celebrate our achievements, and chart a course for the future success of our organization. We look forward to building on this momentum and continuing to serve our members with excellence in the years ahead.

The mahjong competition was fierce and lasted the entire afternoon. The Louis Pomeroy Memorial Trophy was presented by our chapter president, Kevin Kwok (1988), to the highest-scoring old boy, Gregory Chen (62).

We want to sincerely thank our chapter director, Ambrose Cheung (1969), who secured a good deal with the restaurant. He is the best floor manager. Several old boys sponsored lucky draw prizes. Overall, about 1 of 2 attendees won prizes, and we could not be more thankful. Among them, Dr. William Chan (1969) prepared 12 grand prizes.

Background of Louis Pomeroy Memorial Mah Jong Tournament
At the February 2011 Board meeting, the Chapter directors voted unanimously to name henceforth the chapter’s annual spring mahjong tournament the Louis Pomeroy Memorial Trophy Mahjong Tournament in honor and memory of Louis Pomeroy (1941), who left us peacefully on February 1, 2011. Louis was one of the most senior old boys of the Toronto Chapter, and a very loyal one, too. He served as 1st V.P. on the LSCOBA(HK) Committee in the mid-1960s, and was an incumbent director (2009-2011) of the Toronto Chapter. The mahjong tournament was his favorite chapter event

2023 Brother Thomas Golf Tournament

The match was then followed by an award ceremony at Venue Starchiva Cuisine where winners of the match got to celebrate their victories with a nice dinner and pictures.

A big shoutout to our champion, John Yeung (73), as well as our 1st runner up Peter Ma (81) and 2nd runner up Phillip Wong (67).

We would also like to extend a special note of thanks to William Chan (69) and John Yeung (73) who have volunteered their time to organize the event.
