Angi Ma Wong was honored at the recent District 5280 Conference in San Diego, and received a five minute standing ovation for her exemplary history of service to Rotary. She was awarded a plaque for the District Hall of Fame, the District’s highest recognition, for her dedicated service to Rotary and District 5280. This award is not given annually and has strict eligibility criteria.



Angi joined Rotary in 1993 and has served in many positions at our Club and District levels. She has authored about two dozen books including several for children, such as her memorable “Reggie, the LA Gator” (about the famous alligator found in Harbor Park and transported to the LA Zoo). She founded and promoted the annual District Rotarian participation in the Chinese New Year Gala in Chinatown, which has featured hundreds of Rotarians, Rotaractors and Interactors marching or watching. She led our District Group Study Exchange to Mexico.


Angi is a Past President of our Club. She has been active in Club public relations, District Picnic “Cardboard Boat” Contest, youth activities and the luggage drive for the homeless, among many others. She has always been a cheerful volunteer and an inspiration to all of us. We have great pride in honoring her tonight and reminiscing about her many contributions in Service above Self.
