9 August has always been a very special and colourful day to all proud Singaporeans who rejoice the nation’s independence. 11 days from today, Singapore will celebrate her 42nd birthday. To mark this special occasion, we are proud to present the National Day Celeb 07@Bright Hill Evergreen Home. For our pre-celebration segment, the home residents proudly created their national flags and ‘WOW’ was our volunteers’ first response when we witnessed the calligraphy skills of a few elderly who joined in the celebratory mood.
We promise to deliver yet another happy and memorable afternoon with the home residents, some of whom are already looking forward to it.
Do make yourselves available on Saturday, 4th August 2pm at Bright Hill Evergreen Home.
Do wear your favourite red and/or white tops.
Do lend your voices and reach out your hands to the needy elderlys.
Do soak in the fun for the day.
Be fascinated by the elderly’s art pieces and be immersed in the simple pleasures and warmth extended by our lovely elderlys. Our oldest aunty, Lo Mun will be 105 years old on 19 August 2007!
