17 Nov 2005 SSA Contributes Handbook on SGI President Ikeda’s Quotes at National Senior Citizens’ Award Presentation
The Senior Citizens’ Award Presentation Ceremony was jointly organised by local community organisations (Retired and Senior Volunteer Programme, Singapore Action Group of Elders, People’s Association, National Library Board) and supported by the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS). It was held on November 17 at the Raffles Town Club. The Guest of Honour for the event was Minister of State for MCYS, Mrs Yu-Foo Yee Shoon.
As part of the community education project under the Family Life Ambassador Programme, SSA published and presented a handbook entitled “Staying Young in Golden Years” to some 300 guests who attended the event. The handbook contains quotes from SGI President Ikeda dedicated to senior citizens.
SSA also presented two cultural items at the ceremony. Four members from the Women Division presented a Chinese Dance and a Future Division member performed a music piece with the pipa.
[The Senior Citizens’ Award is the culmination of four months of nationwide nominations, interviews and public voting for outstanding senior citizens.]
