ESN Inter-agency Carnival cum Concert 07

Dear reader,

on the 15th Dec 07, Saturday, 2pm - 5pm, the inaugural ESN Inter-Agency Carnival cum Concert was held successfully!

With contributions of efforts from the various agencies caring for the elderly and the YJC and RJC Interactors, we managed to pull off a fun and happy event for around 60 elderly from the different homes.

All in all, the elderly enjoyed themselves at the 14 games, food and barang barang stalls, winning lots of prizes and having a good laugh and chat with volunteers. It was really great to see volunteers and elderly alike enjoying the occasion.

In addition the lucky draw, agency exhibition and slideshow added to the atmosphere.

The concert finale was greatly enjoyed with, great singing from the singers from Moral Home and the Guitar Interest Group, the dancing by staff from Swami and the singing and harmonica performances by the ah kongs from Silra Home.

We really would like to thank the following people for their contributions to the success of the event.
  • YJC for providing their hall and equipment free of charge
  • YJC Interactors and AVA crew for their help rendered
  • Our anonymous sponsors for the carnival, transport and lucky draw prizes
  • PUB for NeWater
  • Volunteers from Silra, Moral, Swami, Sree Narayana, Kreta Ayer, All Saints for their contributions to setting up the stalls
  • Stephanie's friend who acted as Santa Claus
  • Fellow ESN members who made the operations smooth going

Thank you!
