LUNAR NEW YEAR LUNCH FOR THE ELDERLY 2019

LUNAR NEW YEAR LUNCH FOR THE ELDERLY 2019

SWA has been organizing the Lunar New Year Luncheon for the Elderly since 1977. Singapore Petroleum Company (SPC) is the anchor sponsor of the event and has partnered SWA since 2006 to share this “Chun Jie” (春节) festivity with the old folks and to bring cheers to our needy elderly friends.  The lunch was held usually after the 15th day of the first month in Lunar New Year.  Er Ku was engaged to provide the entertainment programme.  About 300 old folks are invited.  The elders were treated to a sumptuous Halal & Non-Halal Chinese lunch. Each elderly received some red packets and a goody bag. They had a wonderful time with the very innovative and retro nostalgic acts and songs put together by the group of entertaining artists arranged by Er Ku.  SPC has pledged its support to continue sponsoring this event. We had very positive feedback from the elderly who attended the lunch and also received thank you letters from the homes. This year on 27 February 2019, we celebrated our 42nd Lunar New Year Lunch for the Elderly.

5th SWHF Induction Ceremony and SCWO International Women’s Day Celebration.

5th SWHF Induction Ceremony and SCWO International Women’s Day Celebration.

Every March, SCWO celebrates International Women’s Day (IWD) with a gala dinner and the Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame (SWHF) induction ceremony. IWD was designated by the UN in 1975 as a special day to reflect on the advancements made by women, to consider the challenges faced today, and to access our role in the future. 

The SWHF was launched by the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations (SCWO) in 2014 to recognize and salute the outstanding women of Singapore. It is the celebration of the women who have made, or are making, an impact on our nation – the boundary-breakers and record-holders, the risk-takers and change-makers, the role-models and standard-setters. Exco members led by Li Hua participated the event.
