As has become tradition during the Lunar New Year, AAIS organised Aerospace Community Day 2020, which saw the aerospace industry hosting some 100 seniors from four homes to a festive new year lunch.
The seniors, from the Bright Hill Evergreen Home, Lee Ah Mooi Old Age Home, St John’s Home for the Elders and Thong Teck Home, enjoyed a sumptuous Chinese spread, starting with the traditional tossing of the Yu-Sheng for good fortune. The MusicMix band and singers also returned to entertain the audience with English, Mandarin, Cantonese and Hokkien tunes from yesteryear. Seniors and volunteers also got into the festive spirit, with the team from Pratt & Whitney taking to the stage to perform “Gong Xi Gong Xi” and Hokkien classic, “Ai Pia Cia E Ya”.
Lunch concluded with the distribution of mandarin oranges and ang baos (red packets), to the gratitude and warm smiles of the elderly.
