Vancouver ChapterContact person: Audrey Yeung

Latest news: On 13 April 2013, a total of 65 alumnae of Ying Wa Boys and Girls, and past teachers participated in a very successful fund-raising dinner. [ more ]

Background: The formation of Alumni Association in Vancouver was initiated by a few early immigrants of YWGs whose husbands were graduated from Ying Wa College way back in the early "80s with founders of less than 8.

With the influx of H.K. immigrants to Vancouver later in the years, YWGS and YW College Alumni Association, Vancouver Chapter, was formally organized 25 years ago. We now have about 120 YWGS and 30 YWBC members in our directory, though about 30% may not be up-to-date over time.

Our Annual Dinners were usually held in spring. In recent years, we invited speakers from our alumnae to give us professional advice on topics of interest like health, estate management, botany, etc. In the last 10 years, we have a moderate participants of 50 including some supportive spouses.

Ever since then, graduates from Class of '59 voluntarily coordinated alumnae in Toronto for Annual Dinners every summer. This has become a tradition and their in the past 21 years, this coordinating work has been passed on to graduates of Class of '71, '70 and now to Yolanda of Class of '77.
