ONCE A SCOUT, ALWAYS A SCOUT

1st. January 2011

Dear TW Kang,

Frist of all, Happy New Year to you and your family too.

I was a Scout in MHS from 1997 to 2001. Our Scout Master then was Mr. Peter Suan Teck Siang.

In 1997, MHS sent about 2 patrol of scouts to attend the 9th Malaysian Jamboree and the 18th APR Jamboree in Kem Seri Keluang Besut, Terengganu.In 1998, we organised a campfire where we invited numerous scouts and guides from other schools. We still manage to use the Scout Den
when we were the committee.

In 2001 there was 3 King Scouts; 1) Daniel Tan Eng Keng, 2) Chan Ching Loon, 3) Koh Kian Way.

In 2002, there was 1 King Scout; Tan Kia Chin.

In 2004, Puan Tan Chay Yan camp is actually the 5th Melaka Jamboree not ASEAN JAMBOREE because the 3rd ASEAN JAMBOREE was held last year in Singapore.

I will try to look for photos and pass to you. About re-connect, it would be great if we could plan a gathering for the 90th celebration...

Yours in scouting,
