Father's Day Celebration


Sirpigal organised Father’s Day Programme “Appa – Our Hero” on Sunday 17 June 2012 at Spans Jom Clubhouse.

It was first of its kind, and Sirpigal was delighted that it undertook this programme in celebrating the Unsung Heroes. Fathers ,the Head of Family are often unnoticed because they are always busy ensuring all is well at home. The event was organised in appreciation for Fathers’ handwork, dedication and sacrifice and also to show how much they are treasured!

The celebration was further enhanced with some 30 Residents from Christalite Methodist Home. The Residents were invited to share the joy and 3 of the Residents joined in cutting a cake to commemorate Father’s Day Celebration. Sirpigal was also honoured to have the presence of Mr Vikram Nair, MP for Sembawang GRC, who graced the occasion. A 2 hour high-tea programme with entertainment enchanted about 150 guests who attended the event. Dr R Theyvendran, President of Tamils Representative Council, was given a token for being a fatherly figure to many and also for Sirpigal, since the day it was formed. Mr M Kunaseakanan, President of Sirpigal, gave away the token to Dr R Theyvendran. Mr Vikram Nair was also presented with a token. The programme was headed by a young member of team, Mr S Jegadheswaren, who had an enriching experience heading the programme. Another interesting highlight was 2 young members also made valuable contributions during the programme. Mr Rengamurthi, co-anchored the programme for the first time with Ms Thiruselvi. 2 wonderful art pieces painted by Ms Kavitha were presented as tokens to both Mr Vikram Nair and Dr R Theyvendran.
