Traditionally, CRC had always organized their Chinese New Year gathering on the field. This year, as the club desires a comfortable environment for all members to enjoy with their families, the gathering was held in the form of a luncheon at the CRC Restaurant on 17th February 2019.
The event began at 12.15pm with a Lion Dance at the main entrance; a welcome greeting to all members. The president, Mr. Yeap Hock Kee and Mr. Loo Soon Chuan, a committee member then lighted a 4.8-metre long, fire cracker at the front gate of the Heritage Building. All members of the general committee were then ushered from the Heritage Building into the restaurant by the Lion Dance and Laughing Buddha troupe to kick start the event.
The serving of the luncheon was accompanied by a thundering drum performance, followed by the opening speech delivered by Mr Yeap. Members of the General Committee then officiated the luncheon by popping crackers and performing the Lou Sang. The live band then took over the afternoon before a special appearance by the God of Prosperity. A total of 20 lucky draw hampers were given to 20 lucky winners that afternoon.
