Project GREASE had their first outreach in 3 months today! It was held at Pasir Ris Blk 575 Multi-Purpose Hall, and four of us were greeted with loud booming music the moment we reached the scene. We began to set up, then followed the usual procedures: talk to interested passers-by, visit the other booths and grab a bite ourselves.

Despite the long interval between our last outreach and today’s, setting up our booth just felt like the most natural thing in the world. (:

A group photo at a newly set-up booth is a must-have every outreach.

At 6pm, kids started streaming in, and we got our very first batch of curious, earnest listeners.

Brenda is a pro with kids!

Watch the little girl whisper secrets into Brenda’s ear!

The event was from 6pm to 9pm, so gradually the sky darkened. Since it was a Children’s Day Party, there was much fun and games to occupy the children with, including the quirky song and dances below.

We engage in deep, thoughtful discussion while the kids have fun.

Nah, just kidding – we’re human too! We pig out.

Minutes later we were back to business.

We are hardy and fresh, despite the three hours of outreaching!

We begin to pack up.

Hurray!

Project GREASE is wholeheartedly supportive of such events, because we feel that all of us should be environmentally-conscious from a young age. Hopefully habits can be better ingrained and values can be inculcated early in life, so they can all grow up to be responsible adults (and proactive agents of change!). Hurray for Children’s Day!
