Community Connect

A Satay Block Party was held on 5th May at Block 103 Aljunied Cresent for the residents of Blocks 102 and 103. The residents had two hours of fun with games which were planned for them. The children took home goodie bags and small prizes from the games. The residents were also each given a bento set , a wide spread of traditional cakes and satays for dinner. It was such a joy to see the seniors sitting around and interacting happily with their neighbours. Each family was also given a bag of food items sponsored by the Ministry of Home Affairs.

The party ended with a “Blessed Draw” for the residents and seven of them walked away with prizes such as toaster ovens and kettles. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we hope to have more of such events for our community.

June: Block Tea Party. Organised by Bethel Assembly and Bethel Community Services

A Tea Party was recently held at Block 64A Circuit Road on 24 June for the residents living around the vicinity of Circuit Road. It was a collaboration between Bethel Community Services and Bethel Assembly of God. Residents enjoyed the 2-hour programme planned for them. They had a lot of fun with the games and sing along session, many of our residents also walked away with NTUC vouchers won during the tea party. They were so excited and participated enthusiastically and spontaneously. There was a good spread of food catered for them. The tambourine dancers also put up a fabulous dance performance for the seniors. The performances were indeed an encouragement to many of the aunties and uncles as despite their age, they are still able to serve the community actively. Before the party ended, each of the resident were given a food bundle containing biscuits, 3-in-1 cereal pack, drinks and other basic essentials. It was truly so heart-warming to see the smiles and to feel the joy of the seniors.
