Invitation to Year of Dog Lunar New Year Celebration Gathering

22 January 2018



Dear members



Invitation to Year of Dog Lunar New Year Celebration Gathering



A beginning of a New Year renews all prosperity and happiness. On behalf of Gan Clan Singapore (GCS), I would like to extend my sincere greetings to every member and wish all of you a Bountiful and Blissful Lunar New Year.


In year 2017, GCS had actively organized activities to celebrate the traditional festivals with the members. The Gan Heritage Centre, which was set up with the support of GCS, had also hosted many cultural events that were open to the public. These have contributed to the propagation of Confucius and Yan Hui’s philosophy, traditional values as well as to the society.


During this auspicious season, I would like to thank all dedicated Gan members and the committee for their great effort and support to events organized by GCS.
