Police K-9 Unit Visit on 6 Sept 2007
The NPCC Alumni organised a visit to the Police K-9 Unit at Mowbray Road on Wednesday, 6 Sep 2007, which was a school holiday.
This visit was part of a community service project where 14 children from the Chen Su Lan Methodist Children’s Home were invited together with 9 other children from the alumni's members.
10 alumni members were also present to accompany the children; making a total of 33 participants.
The visit commenced with a briefing by our guide, Mr Ram, who introduced us to the K-9 unit and the purpose of the dogs, their duties and capabilities. After the performance by the dogs on obedience and other skills, we toured the premises; visiting the training stations and kennels. The children had the opportunity to mingle with some of the dogs and also taking pictures with them. They are all very thrilled by the experience.
Finally the participants were treated to a full lunch sponsored by Dr Georgia Lee, a friend of Winnie Woon.
We would like to thank Siew Lea for arranging such a sumptuous spread of food for us.
The children were also given goodie-bags prepared by the alumni. Some of the items are sponsored by our members.
Also would like to thank Teo Chun Liang who had bought souvenir key chains for the children from Chen Su Lan Home.
The weather was really kind to us on that day. All of us had a whale of time and we are sure the children will remember this trip for a long time to come.
We appreciate Winnie's effort in co-ordinating with the Chen Su Lan Home pertaining to this visit and also in getting the sponsorship of $400 from Dr Georgia Lee for the lunch.
We would also like to thank Chua Siew Lea and Kester Tan for buying, arranging, packing and delivering the goodie-bags and also the NPCC Alumni for paying for the bus transport, and all other incidental and miscellaneous expenses.
Last but not least to all participants, helpers, and especially those who took leave from work for making this such as successful and enjoyable trip.
