Bukit Timah 55th Anniversary Celebration: Hand in Hand
About 10,000 residents and volunteers from various organisations participated in the Bukit Timah 55th Anniversary Celebration on 19 June (Saturday), where the guest-of-honour was our Prime Minister, Mr Lee Hsien Loong.
About 1,500 volunteers had worked tirelessly over three months in preparation for this event and 30 of them were from Concern & Care Society. Our task was to perform a Samba dance item together with volunteers from Bukit Timah Community Club’s Women Executive Committee, Buona Vista Community Club and Ulu Pandan Community Club.
“It was a great and meaningful experience to be able to take part in such a grand event that brought people together. It was also an opportunity for us to express our patriotism towards our home and country.” said Mdm Chan Yoot Mei, one of CCS’ volunteer.
Other performances included Mass Sing Along, Cha Cha and Hip Hop dances and Red & White Team Competition etc.
