Yo angels,
Well, I was late for last Saturday Activity due to personal matters… Sincere apology to those who arrived earlier…

Last Saturday was a games and activities day… We had Poh Yen to play chess and board games with the elderly.. Auntie Molly was playing cards with the ah mas which was later replaced by Uncle Song and Christina… Eric, Jin Siong, Rusty, Christina and Gary helped out in the games where the elderly had fishing. Auntie Chen Peng and Uncle Meng Huat was playing Mahjong with the elderly which was subsequently replaced by Rico and Ah Yong.. By the way, ah yong was not on form that day… Don’t know why?? Perhaps Jojo is not around…. Hehe.. :)

Eric, Uncle Song, Doris, Rico, Mei Kuen and Sharon went around doing befriending and at the same time run errands for the elderly…. Doris had a new hair cut… very pretty… with the first look, Gary and I know that she had a hair made at Johor Bahru… haha.. :)

Gary, Jin Xiong, Uncle Meng Huat and Ah Yong brought out some “Kuai Zhi Ren Kou” songs for the ah gongs and ah mas…

Hopefully I did not miss anybody out…

2. I will likely be organizing a visit to Kreta Ayer Senior Citizen Center at Chinatown next wednesday 20th June 2007 from 7pm to 9.30pm.. Interested personnel, please let me know… Encourage to go as you can see how elderly live on their own in one room HDB flat…

3. 30th June 2007, Hui Qing (Ex-Volunteer of Moral Angel) is organizing a concert for the elderly.. She invited 10 to 15 mobile elderly to the concert at esplanade… So far Winnie has given her consent… Now we need 5 to 8 moral angels volunteers to accompanied them for the concert… There will be providing 20 volunteers and a bus for transportation. Here are the details:

Venue: Singapore Art Cafe, at Esplanade
Time: 2pm to 5pm (will send a team of 20 volunteers to pick up a group of selected 10 to 15 mobile elderly from MH, arrive at esplanade at 3pm latest)

Concert time: 3pm to 4pm (will be an hour of music, songs sang by a few friends and myself…mainly oldies…my dad loves oldies of shanghai era…n i believe the elderly will love these familiar old tunes too)

Other program: Lucky draw prizes (like small items to cheer the folks), and light tea snack (sponsored) at the Art Cafe

Objectives:
a)To bring sweet memories to elderly giving them a treat at somewhere different, and in tribute of my father

b) To invite more young working adults esp of my network (those executives) to be exposed to volunteerism…..(kind of like NVPC ambassador..haha, for u know, volunteerism is FUN, n meaningful:)
Logistic: 20 volunteers, 1 bus (sponsored)
Safety plan: The Esplanade is quite friendly to elderly (lifts direct) and have handicapped toilets. Thus, safety should not be an issue.
