Gan Clan Singapore Qing Ming Festival Memorial Service
As you may be aware, Qing Ming Festival is that time of the year when we pay respects to our ancestors.
At Gan Clan Singapore (GCS), we conduct a Memorial Service as a form of respect to our ancestors. This service is particularly meaningful for members who had inscribed the demise dates of their ancestors on the monument plaque at our auditorium.
This year, our Memorial Service, led by Mr Gan Boon Hock will be held on Sunday, 29 March 2015 at 10 am. Other details are: Observance of 3 minutes’ silence as form of respect to our ancestors, condolence by Dr Gan See Khem, President of GCS, Memorial Service by GCS Council and respective families, Presentation of flowers by members and their families (members can either bring their own flowers or order them through the GCS Secretariat), Presentation of flowers by guests (GCS will arrange for some flowers to be available for the guests). Light refreshments will be served.
In order for members from different religions to participate in this Memorial Service, GCS members have been paying respect to their ancestors with flowers. Please place your order of flowers (from $38 onwards) from the Secretariat (Tel: 62230739 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, 13 March.
We look forward to members’ attendance at this Memorial Service and you are at liberty to invite your relatives to join you.
