Mukah Tua Pek Kong temple honours senior citizens

Date:

MUKAH: Mukah Tua Pek Kong Temple committee continued its tradition of respecting and honouring senior citizens during its Chap Goh Meh celebration here last Saturday.

The committee presented some senior citizens aged 60 years and above with ang pow (red envelopes containing cash) as a small token of appreciation for their role and contribution to the community.

Tellian assemblyman Yussibnosh Balo congratulated the committee for organising the meaningful celebration.

“The government provides appropriate support to religious activities organised by any community such as Chap Goh Meh,” he said.

The former Balingian assemblyman also announced a government grant of RM10,000 to the temple committee.

Chap Goh Meh marked the end of the Chinese New Year celebration.

The celebration, among others, featured karaoke and lucky draw.

Temple committee chairman Leong Kin Lee, advisor Kang Siew Hai and Kapitan Ting Siew Leong also attended the event.
