Double Whammy for the YEC

11 January 2010

It was a pleasant surprise to see the article on YoSpinz.

Here's an excerpt of the article:
Capitalising on the revived interest in yoyo, Mr Fong Yoong Kheong, 23, Vice-chairman of the Eunos CC Youth Executive Committee (YEC) initiated a yoyo interest group at his CC.

He thinks an interest group is an effective way for the YEC to reach out to more youths. He also believes that when people are grouped together by interest, it will allow more interaction and for them to bond together.

“I was walking around the neighbourhood, and I noticed bubble tea shops selling yoyos,” Mr Fong recalled. Not only that, he also saw many young children playing the yoyo while walking back home from school. So, his YEC placed banners near schools, recruiting members for the yoyo interest group, hoping for at least 30 participants before launching the group.

Within three weeks, there were already more than 30 members. Mr Fong was pleased with the response, and the group, month-old group, YoSpinz, meets every other Friday.

Meanwhile, the "Happy Smiles, Joyous Hearts" event, which was jointly organised by 5 PAYM Service Learning Clubs and Eunos CC YEC, was also featured in the Berita Harian.
