January 2009 / e-newsletter

On 16 January, about 80 residents at the St John's Home for the Elderly were treated to an early Lunar New Year celebration with luncheon and entertainment by ST Telemedia staff. The fun-filled afternoon, including sing-along session certainly lifted the spirits of the residents with a number of them even joining in the singing and dancing. For many of them, the songs brought back fond memories of their younger days.

The 20 ST Telemedia staff who volunteered their time to spend a meaningful afternoon at the Home were truly heartened to see the elderly folks enjoying themselves so much. The hugs and smiles of the residents spoke volumes of their appreciation for the Staff's time and effort. The memorable event ended with the presentation of "Hong Bao" (Red Packets- traditionally given during the festive season to symbolise good fortune) to the elderly folks by ST Telemedia executives, and well wishes to all that the Year of the Ox would bring even greater joy, health and fortune.
