President's Challenge Lo Hei Lunch!

Celebrating Chinese New Year with The President

On 15 February, REACH Community Services Society had the privilege to bring her elderly beneficiaries to the President's Challenge Lo Hei Lunch at Istana to have lunch with our President, Dr Tony Tan and his wife, Mrs Mary Tan.

It was indeed a very special occasion for both RCSS and her beneficiaries. We also acknowledge that it is a privilege because we are the sole beneficiary of the President's Challenge to be invited for this event.

The President’s Challenge Lo Hei Lunch was memorable and meaningful for our seniors as they received the President's personal greetings. And for most of the seniors, it was also a first time visit to the Istana. According to the President’s Challenge Secretariat, this is the first ever Lo Hei lunch at the Istana.

We also had the opportunity to present to Mrs. Mary Tan the t-shirt bags and the color wire weaving that the seniors made. On top of that, we presented a "huay-choon” to the President, wishing him great health and stability to the nation. The seniors were glad to be able to put to use what they have learnt from the activities and programmes at REACH Senior Centre.
