SMOU celebrates 65th anniversary with massive family day

SMOU celebrates 65th anniversary with massive family day
The Singapore Maritime Officers Union (SMOU) celebrated its 65th birthday last weekend with a massive family day at Universal Studios Singapore (USS).

The "Nite out at USS" was attended by 4,500 union members and their families, representatives from shipping companies and beneficiaries of various communities and homes.

These beneficiaries who have been specially invited to join the occasion are children and single mothers from NTUC WeCARE for U, as well as elderly residents from Bright Hill Evergreen Home, Henderson Home, Hope Community Services Centre, Jalan Kukoh and Jamiyah Home for the Aged.

Singapore’s Acting Minister for Education (Schools) and Senior Minister of State for Transport Ng Chee Meng was guest-of-honour at the evening.

Speaking at the event Mary Liew, general-secretary of SMOU said: “When SMOU embarked on the preparations to commemorate this milestone, we thought very long and hard on choosing the theme that best describes our 65 years of journey and yet, at the same time is able to reflect the future as we progress. Thus, we settled on the theme, “Growing Together with You”, a simple yet apt phrase that embodies our past, present and future.”
