NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS - Regimental Associations
Volunteers remember giving one day¡¦s pay for Life Membership of the Regimental Association. That association organised the annual dinner, a families¡¦ splash night and the dragon boat entry. It relied on the Regiment for its administration and clearly this association could not continue once the Regiment had disbanded. In 1993 its members voted for it to be wound up and dissolved. Hence that association no longer exists.

At the same time a new association, with a slightly different name, came into being on a legal basis which could survive without the Regiment¡¦s support. After disbandment this new association took over some of the duties previously undertaken by the Regiment. These included assistance to Trailwalker and other charities, organising the Victory Day Ceremony at the City Hall and the Foundation Day Dinner. This new association became responsible for its own administration and the running of the club house which we did not have before. This new association is open to all ex-Volunteers, members of the old association, on the payment of a small annual fee, only HK$200 per year. This fee goes part way to maintain the clubhouse, financing the various organised events including the Happy Hour associated with film nights.Last year this new association changed its legal name to be the same as that held by the pre-disbandment association, namely The Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) Association.
