KOTA KINABALU: Anapoly, an abbreviation for Persatuan Anak-Anak Bekas Polis Sabah, aims to launch an aggressive membership drive and open new branches across the state.

Its president Petrus Ambrose Bansing said apart from providing opportunity to the members to “keep in touch and stay connected”, Anapoly also encourages members to make new friends.

“Most of us grew up together and share a lot of memories, both good and bad. We enjoy each other’s company and decided to set up an association to stay connected.

“We expect to be more active this year, especially after succeeding in registering the association with the Registry of Societies Electronic System (eROSES), recently.

“Now adults, most of us grew up and work in different fields, therefore Anapoly offers a platform for its members to exchange and share views. In addition, we also get to promote healthy lifestyles through our many activities,” he said during the association’s dinner in conjunction with its maiden Annual General Meeting, here, recently.

The dinner was launched by Anapoly advisor Billy Yumbod, the former director of the Human Resource Development Department (JPSM).

Bansing also urged all Committee Members to be more proactive to ensure the smooth running of Anapoly’s programmes.
