During the Retreat, CYC members mingled and brainstormed ideas for major projects. They discussed ways to attract more YOUths to major events such as Chingay and Asia’s largest street party, City Alive! YOUths can also look forward to an exciting 2011 with activities lined up to celebrate PAYM’s 40th Anniversary.
It was not all work on Day One. After dinner and rehearsal for a surprise item at the upcoming PAYM CYC Installation and Awards Ceremony, CYC members went for a karaoke session at Yishun SAFRA Club.
It was amazing they were able to stay up till very late and had to wake up early next morning for an aerobic work-out led by fitness instructors from California Fitness before practicing a flash mob dance with students of Nanyang Polytechnic. After all the exercise in the morning, CYC members spent the later half of the day with interesting energiser activities and group discussions.
It was a surprise when PAYM presented every CYC member with a photo momento and bought herbal drinks for everyone who stayed up late the previous night. CYC members went home tired but satisfied with the fruitful and memorable Retreat.

While waiting to catch a glimpse of the celebrities, families turned up early to visit educational booths set up by Aljunied Town Council, NEA, HDB and Eunos CC YEC. More than 100 children participated in the colouring contest and games. Many went home happily with balloons, goodie bags and shopping vouchers. It was also a pleasant surprise for the many Mothers who received carnation flowers from the MP, Mr Zainul after his visit to Blk 608 to educate residents on the dangers of killer litter.
Eunos CC YEC Vice-Chairman, Mr Fong Yoong Kheong shared: “As youths, there are so much more we can do to spread the zero-littering message. The YEC hopes to recruit more young people into our Eco-Savvy Interest Group where they can brainstorm interesting ideas and do something for the environment.”
On what plans the YEC have for the Zero Litter Month, Eunos CC YEC Chairman, Mr Sear Hock Rong said: “We are working closely with Bedok North Secondary School (BNSS) and local Residents’ Committees to organise more outreach activities. The YEC will be going door-to-door with students from BNSS Service Learning Club to educate residents on zero-littering. There are also plans to partner RCs to organise a Fashion Show where participants will dress up in recyclables such as plastic bottles and shoe boxes.”
Catch youths in action on Saturday, 22 May 2010, as they take the lead in picking up litter in Eunos Zone ‘6’ RC precinct and visiting residents to spread the message of keeping their estates clean and safe!
