Behind those dark glasses, my eyes had the pleasure of absorbing the generosity from those unconditional helping hands with the radiant combination of fun and laughter between the young & old.
And so, as my eyes focused through the lens, I saw
A story about success – as ReActive8 club and Gujarati school embraced the possibilities of achieving togetherness through one celebration;
A story about commitment – from the volunteers whose actions spoke in volumes as the party unfolded with all its fine details;
A story about achievement – at the point when one realised the rest were a noticeable distance behind with their sacks;
A story about determination –adults verses volunteers, as they tugged and pulled…welcome to the world of tug of war;
A story about talent – exposed by all, for all to see as it ignited a feeling of a personal challenge for one to achieve;
A story about ‘no escape’ – catapulted wet sponges and water filled buckets guaranteed ‘no escape’ except for the water into the ground;
A story about fun – as some unleashed their dormant mischievous side or was it the experience of creating a cloud of white flour as it made way for the treasure to unfold;
A story about food – from making to indulging, it surpassed all expectations and teased our taste buds throughout the event;
A story about bonding – captured at the opportunity of a picnic on the grass amongst family and friends;
A story about water melon – yes water melon, thirst quenching eyes lit up as people indulged in 1, 2, 3……7 pieces and even more;
A story about team spirit – as the cheering was projected with winning intentions as the caterpillars screamed ‘next’;
A story about an anticipated delight – when one’s eye caught the site of the ice-cream van;
A story about gratitude – as the speeches were heard with sheer thankfulness in their voices.
Behind those dark glasses, I saw many different stories. I wonder what stories you’ll see and tell from the pictures…
Thank you to every person who helped and attended this party – you made the year end perfectly!
