Grassroots with passion


Greetings to all members and welcome to the latest issue of Grassroots With Passion! We had our 27th Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 26 July 2019. After the AGM, members indulged in a delicious 8-course sit down dinner with stage performances and games. Everyone had a great time and friendships were deepened. Turn to page 8 to recap the joyous evening. The Singapore Bicentennial in 2019 marks the 200th anniversary of Sir Stamford Raffles’ arrival in Singapore. Read what this is all about and why we are commemorating it on page 4.
