Annual Community Outing

Special children enjoy a day at the pool

Special children enjoy a day at the poolManila – The Annual Community Outing was celebrated at Balara Swimming Pool on April 10, 2013. Different sectors of the community, special children, elderly, youth, staff, volunteers and religious joined the trip. This is an annual event giving the whole community an extravagant break from the poverty of everyday living.

The outing was enjoyed by all, especially at the declaration of the pool’s opening. They jumped in happily together; swimming, playing and laughing with their comrades.

Everyone was entertained by the games facilitated by the youth while the pool closed for lunch; ‘stop dancing’ for special children, ‘dance showdown’ for the religious, ‘ping pong’ for children and ‘bring me’ for everyone. Prizes, like t-shirts, toys, and relief goods were awarded to the winners. After eating the delicious meal that they brought for lunch, the pool was reopened for another round of fun and play. The fun multiplied as the heat of the sun diminished. Everyone went home filled with Guanellian Spirit from the memorable outing. God is good all the time.
