Community News 2015
SD Dragon Boat Alliance sends condolences to Singapore & SD's Singapore/ Malaysia Club
on passing of Singapore's first Prime Minister, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew (1923-2015). Just as Mr. Lee Kuan Yew founded modern Singapore, Singapore was founder of dragon boat in San Diego with its donation in 1983 of 3 dragon boats to the City of San Diego. SD dragon boat's roots in Singapore run deep, and we share Singapore's sadness.
