Lunar New Year Celebration Lunch tomorrow

E-mail sent by Singapore, Friday, February 22nd, 2013 @ 2:37pm


Chances are most of you have decided not to go to the Lunar New Year Celebration Lunch tomorrow. For those of you who have, no worries, we look forward to a great event, with the lion dance, the work we've put in to decorate the place, and welcome you all.

One thing you won't be short of will be food. We have at present 59 registered but we've already ordered food for 120. This places us in an interesting and costly conundrum. The amount from the registration fees for 59 won't cover food for 120. (it requires about 110 tickets to cover the costs of the event). 

We hope you already understand why this event is different from past ones, as explained in a prior email. We imagine each of you have good reasons for declining, whether for schedule, cost, location, interest, food, or other concerns. Every event brings their set of challenges and one must always remember to try the best at each and hope to exceed our expectations. 

So where does this leave us for trying hard, but still falling a little short?

First, if you were sitting on the fence about signing up, do come join the 59 who will be there. Your contribution will be even more greatly appreciated in this time and help us celebrate the event in a bigger fashion. Sign-ups will be taken at the door too.

Or if you know someone who might be interested, let them know.

For those coming tomorrow, you might want to consider taking some containers to bring back the extra food, and have a plan to share it with those in need.

Happy New Year!
