Hilo Angels,
Thank you for everyone support for this outings. Sorry I don t have the name list of everyone who took part… Otherwise put your name here. (SeeSan do you have the list you can add in?).

The outings went on well with the support of the volunteers and the weather.

Some of the committee were there by noon to set up things like Stuart, Doris, Song, Christina, See San, Gary, Josephine and SK.

The elderlys were so eager for this outing. They were downstair waiting by 12.30.The weather was hot and sunny, so the committee decided to continue the plan to go to the park.

Volunteer registration were from 12.30 to 1.45, most of the volunteers were there by 1.45. Last minute there were some changes in the volunteers and the elderly list, some could not make it, with the strong support of our volunteers, we manage to keep this outing smoothly. Finally, there was one less in the number of elderlys that supposed to join this outing. Good job josephine, see san and christina.

Sam gave briefing to the volunteers regarding the outing detail and the handling of wheelchair by 2pm.

This outing was divided to two groups, one for each bus.

We reached the park within half an hour. We quickly took our group photos as the unpredictable weather began to rain.Umbrellas were distributed to all the volunteers. We took a shelter at the temporary “tent”(I don’t know what it is called) which was big enough for us to conduct game there. The “tent” was not there when we prior to this outing. Luckily there was shelter otherwise we might need to get back to the bus and continue our plan B.

In the shelter, the elderlys had their yam cake and drink, then followed by the volunteers. Elderlys’ hands were washed prior and after the snack.

Snack Time!!! Don’t snatch.. Is enough for everyone!!! Look at all the hungry souls.

SK led the games after that. They played musical ball, which, the music was songs sang by the volunteers and guitarist. The elderlys who had the ball when the music stopped would get a bottle of chicken essence. Then the next game involved some of the volunteers in the middle of the circle, kick or throw the ball between them and the elderlys.

Its Game Times.. Woww..lot of goodies to be given out…

About 3.45pm, the “passing rain” stopped. All the elderlys except two were put on wheelchair to stroll and enjoy the breeze by the sea. They were divided to two groups, one group to one end of the park, while the other group headed to the jetty. It took about 20 minutes for them to reach to one end, then each group headed to the other end of the park. By 4.30 the two groups gathered and boarded the buses to go back to moral home.

Beautiful View of Labrodor Park
