Volunteer Appreciation Gathering 2015

Posted: 29th December 2015 by RCCS Youth in General Anouncements







We had our very first Volunteer Appreciation Gathering to end off a good year! Some of our volunteers attended the event all dressed up and ready to celebrate. Our President this year, Christy Liu, started off the presentation with a greeting and slideshow of the photos and videos of the many events and gatherings that we had this year. It was great looking back on this year and remembering the fun times we had volunteering.

This year, aside from helping out with RCCS events, we also had our own events again. In February, we had our second annual Sandwich Run in which we made 300 sandwiches again and handed them out to the people in need. In the summer, we had a summer social where we invited our friends to join us for a BBQ and we watched the fireworks together. We also had one of our biggest events, Youth Fair 2015: Amazing Race Special. We decided to hold an amazing race this time and had many teams competing against each other in mini games. There was a lot of running and excitement throughout the competition. Thank you to those we participated in our events. We’re also glad to have so many volunteers helping out.

After the presentation, we presented certificates and made a few speeches. Congratulations to Billy Leung on receiving the Most Helpful Member award and Annabelle Wong on the Most Dedicated Member award. It was also great having the RCCS President, Alex Wong, join us at this gathering. He was very proud of our achievements throughout the years! Some of us went up to say a few words about our experience this year. To end off the presentation, we took our handover photos with the outgoing and incoming Cabinet. This year’s Cabinet is Christy Liu as President, Stanley Li as Vice President, Sherlock Lau as Secretary, and Monica Ho as Treasurer. Next year’s Cabinet is Monica Ho as President, Annabelle Wong as Vice President, Christopher Ng as Secretary, and Sherlock Lau as Treasurer. Congratulations and looking forward to next year! Stay tuned everyone!

Summer Social 2015

For this year’s Summer Social, we decided to have some of our newer executives plan and host this successful event. With many new and exciting opportunities to connect, we even found ourselves playing beach volleyball with visitors from Japan! Although they didn’t join us for our barbeque dinner, we still had a great time with everyone. One funny thing that happened was that we forgot to bring utensils for our BBQ, so we had to come up with more creative ways to eat our food. We do learn a lot from organizing our social events too! To conclude the day, we all gathered together, played Charades while we waited, and watched Canada’s firework performance in the Celebration of Lights.

Youth Fair 2015: Amazing Race Special

Posted: 10th August 2015 by RCCS Youth in General Anouncements


We just had one of our biggest events this year on Saturday, July 25th! The event was unique this year as there was an Amazing Race special around Central Richmond. Four teams competed in the competition for first and second place with prizes to be won.

The event started off with a presentation of our group made by our President, Christy, and our treasurer, Monica. Afterwards, we split the audience into two teams to play a game of Charades as volunteers helped set up the booths around Richmond. The words were very challenging and it became very competitive. When it was time for the Amazing Race to begin, teams headed down to Minoru Park to play the first game, Tarp Folding. For this game, the teams had to compete by fitting everyone into a tarp and at every stage, the folds get smaller. The winning team was able to get a head start at the Popcorn Tasting booth. There were 5 different flavours of popcorn that had to be guessed correctly before teams could move onto the next game. The next game was Find the Message which members had to eat a lemon in a cup to find a letter at the bottom and put together a message. Afterwards, we had a game in the mall where members had to look volunteers in our orange t-shirts and only one of them had the right message. Other games included Guess the Song and Food Stacking. The last stop was at the RCCS office where teams had to take a group photo with adorable teddybears at our photobooth.






When the teams returned, they were all very tired. The Amazing Race definitely got youths running around and exercising. Congratulations to the two winning teams! We would like to thank everyone that attended and our volunteers that helped out a lot throughout the day. Our group aims to bring together youths from the community to meet each other and have fun. We hope everyone enjoyed Youth Fair and look forward to our future events!
