The Hougang Village Merchants’ Association held its 6th     Anniversary Celebration Cum the New Year Gala Dinner on 10th March at 6th Community Park in front of Blk 686 Hougang St  Blk 686 Hougang St 61. Mr. Gan Thiam Poh, MP of Ang Mo Kio GRC and Honorary Advisor of Hougang Village Merchants’ Association attended the event with more than 500 guests.

It is the 6th year for Hougang Village Merchants’ Association to hold a series of Chinese New Year Celebration events. In order to create a lively atmosphere of the Lunar New Year, lanterns are installed everywhere in the constituency in the past few years. The Chinese New Year lighting, the Chinese New Year market, the couplet archway, and the large scale God of Wealth, Wishing Tree, Chinese Zodiac archway, Chinese zodiac lanterns, and racial harmony lanterns brought together nearby residents to experience the traditional Chinese festive atmosphere, which not only make residents feel more involved and enhance exchanges to help foster harmony among neighbours, but also enhance the cohesion of the society.

The Merchants’ Association has received great support from Mr. Toh Soon Huat, Chairman of Novena Foundation. In support of  charity , the Hougang Village Merchants’ Association donated $11,888 raised that night to Sian Chay Medical Institution which was led by Mr. Toh Soon Huat. They will promote the beliefs and strengths of charity with Sian Chay.

Chairman Toh Soon Huat has always adhered on the 5 core values of Sian Chay; ie, “Forgiveness, Universal Love, Compassion, Gratitude and Blessing” and advocated nation building of the nation and social harmony. Sian Chay actively promotes its belief that “ Nation Progresses, Family Prospers; Family Harmony, Successful Endeavours. Forward with the Nation, Bonding with the People.” By actively participating in the charity events organized by community organisations, civic groups, community centres, Sian Chay has been fully supporting the welfare cause and giving back to the society. Mr. Toh has always practiced himself and influenced the people around him with his own actions. He spreads love to the people around him. The power of love also shines in everyone’s hearts to deliver warmth to all.

Last but not least, great appreciation to the kind gesture of all from Hougang Village Merchants’ Association and benevolent people.
