We started the new year 2020 with a fund raising CNY Luncheon at One Farrer Hotel on 1st Feb 2020. Ladies turned up in sarong kebayas for the Peranakan theme event and many ladies enjoyed the dancing and live music. More than 200 members and guests attended the event which was graced by Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC Ms Joan Pereira and several members of the diplomatic corp.
CWA continued to donate to the Queenstown Secondary School bursary to support students who are financially challenged. We postponed our Annual General Meeting from May to 27th September 2020 due to the Covid pandemic and conducted the meeting via Zoom. Several suggestions were made to keep members meaninfully fully occupied. A cooking class at At-Sunrice was organised for members in October 2020.
On 6 th December, CWA launched the CWA-NUS Bursary at Yan’s Dining.
The organising committee will be planning more events in 2021 to support this initiative. I wish to record my heartfelt thanks to the resilience and unwavering support of members of the Executive Committee during this period of uncertainty.
