55th Anniversary Celebrations were celebrated with many activities to commemorate this grand occasion of its 55th birthday. The Club was registered on 25th September 1963 as a first non profit voluntary organisation to promote the Spirit of Adventure. Over the past 55 years, we gone through many troubled water and this small club of SAC managed to survive via the concerted efforts of its ever supporting members..
The Grand Finale of the 55th Anniversary Celebration was well attended by over 250 members and most of them took this opportunity to re-new relationship and talked about the “good old days”. On the morning the Celebration started with a 55km cycling trip by 59 cyclists along East Coast of Singapore. It was flagged off by the Member of Parliament, Fengshan SMC, Miss Cherly Chan
In the evening, we had a big spread of bar-b-que for all the guests. Talks by old adventurer and past President, Mr.Yap Siak Hong on his adventures highlighted the grand occasion. Mr. Anthony Yip, Past President also show and tell some of the history which brought back fond memories of yesterdays.
We commemorated the 55th Anniversary with a T-shirt bearing a design of a large elephant (representing Leadership) with a thoughtful slogan stating “ Leaving behind our 55 years footprints in adventure”
