National Day Celeb 2008 at BHEH

Dear volunteers

A BIG thank you to all who joined us over the last 2 Saturdays and who helped out with the National Day hats making. Together, we engaged and persuaded a good number of elderly to work with us and through the process, we enjoyed the company of these elderlys and new volunteers. Volunteers too unveiled their talents in arts which we thought was really amazing!

Be sure to join us again on 2 August 2008 for an early National Day celebration to be hosted by two wonderful volunteers, Ghim Boon (aka John) & Siok Hoon. Details of the day’s programme are attached.

We will like to extend a warm welcome to ALL volunteers and to our senior volunteers whose names are mentioned in this email. Please pardon us for not keeping a good record of senior volunteers’ contacts. 你们真的太久没来了! 下来聚一聚吗? If you are still in contact with other senior volunteers, please do pass on our invitation for them to join us for a REUNION on 2 August 2008. Let’s ALL get together to celebrate the volunteer group’s anniversary! We understand that the group was formed in August and it will be great to receive confirmation on which year it was formed.

Volunteers who purchased the group’s T-shirts, please remember to wear them! If not, you are encouraged to wear the national colours, red/white.

Cheers – Ghim Boon, Siok Hoon & Catherine J
