Elderlies receive festival greetings and gifts
More than 20 administrative staff and volunteers in Weiting Sub-district showed their love and care for the elderlies in Weiting Sub-district Nursing Home on June 6 in an event to mark the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival, which, reckoned on the fifth day of the fifth month on the Chinese lunar calendar, will fall on June 18 this year.
Following the tradition, the administrative staff and volunteers made zongzi, a traditional food that Chinese eat around the festival. They skillfully filled glutinous rice dumplings with red bean paste and candied dates and wrapped them in bamboo leaves. Then they gave the steamed zongzi to the elderlies at the nursing home along with their blessings.
