to mark the 50th anniversary of the National Council of Social Service, NCSS, a carnival will be staged at the Esplanade over this weekend to celebrate the achievements and evolvement of voluntary organisations, donors and social services in Singapore for half a century. The carnival includes games and exhibition stalls set up by voluntary organisations to raise funds for the respective beneficiaries of these organisations and raise awareness of the voluntary works conducted at each organisation. Since All Saints Home will be setting up a stall at this carnival, do join us in this joyous event by bringing your family and friends to this carnival. I can assure you that this will be a memorable weekend to remember. Details of the carnival are as follow:
Event: Carnival & Heartstrings Walk 2008
Date: 23rd and 24th August 2008
Location: Esplanade Park (All Saints Home's booth, F7, will be selling food and goodies)
While a number of volunteers from All Saints Home will be involved in this event, service will continue as per normal this saturday at All Saints Home. However, the service will be shifted to an earlier time slot at 2.00 pm as a dozen visitors from Rockwell Automation will be joining us for the service with the elderly this saturday. There will be a tea session and games organised by the visitors, and they will be needing the assistance of the volunteers with the elderly.
As we can see, this week is packed with activities. Let us all bring forth the enthusiasm and effort that we display every satuday at ASH to ensure the success of both events!
