Silver Friends CNY Carnival

PROJECT CO-DIRECTOR & VOLUNTEER TEAM MANAGER (2017)

Silver Friends Chinese New Year Carnival (11th Feb 2017) is jointly organised by the Central Singapore Community Development Council, People’s Association, Leng Kee CCMC, Team Young NTUC Volunteers, SMU Rotaract Club and NTUC Health Silverace Senior Activity Centres.

We reached out to a total of 170 senior citizens from Lengkok, Bukit Merah, Redhill, Telok Blangah and Whampoa, and engaged 96 youth volunteers. Besides wonderful performances by p.L.a.Y!, Lengkok SAC, Bukit Merah SAC, and Lengkok CC, the feeling of nostalgia was in the air as we relived the Professions in early Singapore with specially designed carnival game booths and fashion parade featuring Majie, Samsui Woman, Pawnbroker, Orang Laut, Getai Performer, Kachang Puteh Man, Satayman, and Mata-Mata!
