Be a President's Marksman!

29 August 2009

YEC members were at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza on 29 August 2009 for President's Challenge 2009 - "Bridging Hearts, Connecting Smiles" The Charity Carnival organised by the People's Association Youth Movement. We were honoured to have President SR Nathan graced this event as Guest of Honour. Minister Lim Boon Heng and other Members of Parliament were also present to show their support!

Eunos CC YEC operated a game stall at the Carnival to raise funds for MILK! (Mainly I Love Kids!). At the game stall, members of the public can choose to play 'Bingo' (our all-time popular game at Eunos grassroots activities), 'President's Marksman' (ball throwing game) and 'Rubix Challenge' (solve the rubix cube game). Although YEC members had to work under the hot sun on a Saturday morning, it was heartening to see many people come to the booth to try our games.

The most popular game would probably be 'President's Markman' where participants try to topple all the cans using one ball throw to win themselves a big prize. One student from Siglap Secondary School was lucky to be a 'President's Marksman' and walk away with a DVD player.

"It was even more meaningful for me to do my part in raising funds for the needy, as I was fasting that day and the hot sun made us so thirsty and tired. I was glad we made it!"

Noor Abdillah Bin Ali
Assistant Treasurer, Eunos CC YEC

"Participating in a major event like this gives us the exposure and we can get to know more friends. Importantly, we can do our part in giving back to society."

Diana Chua Jia Ling
Children's Programme Secretary, Eunos CC YEC

There were a few other YECs who operated game stalls. Some sold food and drinks. Some sold products. Some provided live printing, henna drawing and song dedication. It was a perfect opportunity for YEC members to network and catch up with one another. In the evening, our CCC Chairman, Mr Sim Wai Chin BBM also came to lend his support. The Carnival ended at 10.00pm.

It was great to be able to participate in a meaningful event like the President's Challenge and everyone felt a sense of fulfilment when our game stall managed to raise some money for our beneficiary.

Sear Hock Rong,
Chairman, 13th term Eunos CC YEC
