Wendy Khon, our 3rd Vice President was the Organising Chair.  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 on 8th March 2018 at Quan Xi Restaurant.  Er Ku was engaged to provide the entertainment programme.  SPC has made a donation to sponsor the event.   The total number of table is 39 (34 tables and 5 volunteer tables).  Ms Ellen Lee, former member of Parliament of Sembawang GRC  and President of Singapore Table Tennis Assocation was the Guest of Honour. 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.
