• Another busy period in Macau

    4 April 2017

    The Lighthouse Club Macau is now in its twelfth year of existence.

    We are sad to convey the news of the passing of Richard S. Travers peacefully at his home in Macau on 13th December 2016. Richard was one of the founding members of the Lighthouse Club Macau (LCM), and since inception in 2005 Richard was a constant supporter of the Club and its activities, having held various committee positions within the Club throughout.  He provided inspiration for, and contributed much to the growth of the Club in Macau.  An obituary to Richard follows this article.

    The LCM Benevolent Funds was again active in 2016 in supporting 7 related construction related fatalities or accidents in Macau.  Lighthouse Club Macau donations of almost MOP300,000 were made to the families of those involved and whilst our efforts are appreciated it is no substitute for the suffering experienced when the husband, father or breadwinner dies.  It is a sad reminder of our high risk construction industry and reinforces the need for continued vigilance by all of us.

    At the end of 2016, The Lighthouse Club Macau had more than 200 members, including 24 corporate members and 95 individual members. In 2017, due to the completion of several large projects, maintaining membership levels will be a challenge.

    Monthly functions were held in December sponsored by Hsin Chong Engineering (Macau) Ltd, in January 2016 sponsored by Circle Engineering and Construction Ltd, and in February sponsored by Tong Lei Construction and Engineering Co. Ltd.

    The Lighthouse Club Macau Annual General Meeting for 2016/17 will be held during the March function. 

    On 2nd April 2017, Min Da Construction Ltd, one of our local contractors and solid Lighthouse Club  Macau supporters, is arranging and sponsoring their third Annual Charity Golf Day in nearby Hengqin Island, followed by a dinner at the Macau Tower. Min Da will be making a significant donation the LCM Benevolent Fund.

    In April we will hold our Annual Dinner in Sands Cotai Central, Sheraton Hotel.
