PAP grassroots organizations prepare to ‘celebrate’ National Day
Posted by temasektimes on June 28, 2012
About 200 activities will be held to promote ‘community bonding’ with some aiming to smash ‘world records’ such as the efforts by grassroots leaders of Ayer Rajah division to create the world’s largest cupcake mosaic, using 20,000 cupcakes, to celebrate National Day.
They also want to set a new Guiness record. The current standing Guiness world record, using 5,000 cupcakes, was set in the United States.
Speaking to queries from the media, Chairman of Ayer Rajah Youth Executive Committee Ricky Lin said:
“At the community level, we want to excite and inspire the youth to contribute back to the society using this world record first ever youth celebrating national day. I believe this is the first of the many projects in terms of baking because CommuniBAKE is where the community comes to bake, care and share.”
As for Marine Parade division, it will be gunning for the largest number of people eating popcorns while watching a movie.
All grassroots organizations in Singapore are under the auspices of the People’s Association, a supposedly ‘non-partisan’ statutory board headed by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
