Joint Deepavali Celebration at Shan's Children Home

Leo Club of Penang (City) had jointly successfully organized another meaningful community service project with New Century Lions Club of Penang Island and Lions Club of Tawau Cosmo, Sabah last Saturday. We had celebrated Deepavali, the festival of lights with a bunch of Hindu children from Shan's Children Home, Mount Erskine, Penang. Deepavali or the Festival of lights is an important festival in the Hindu calendar. The whole celebration last for almost a week. There will be a lot of oil lamps during this celebration. The Hindus light oil lamps in a row of earthenware lamps outside their dwellings to usher in peace and prosperity into their homes and surroundings.

Leo Ying Ting, who was the Co-Organizing Chairperson had planned a series of entertainments for the children. Other than hosting the lunch, we had also prepared games and some performances for the children too. A birthday celebration for the November babies was carried out at the end of the project. The children had also received the "purple" packet from the Lions as well as a bag of gift from the organizers too. We were very honour to have YB Koay Teng Hai, the assemblyman for Pulau Tikus State constituency to join us as the guest of honur. The Lions dignitaries who had taken out their precious time to join us in this meaningful inter district joint project were VDG1 Shawn Lee, VDG2 Tan Swee Kok, ZC Alan Cheah, RCC for Leos R1 Ong Lai Penag and DVP1 Kok Sheng. Thank you for your support. We are very sure that the children have had an enjoyable time with us. Special thanks to OC Ying Ting, VP Him Keat, Trea. Min Xiang, Alfred Lim, Wallace Mak, Sammy Saw and PP Stanley Saw for working together to make this project a success one. Roar~
