In collaboration with The Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (SCORE), The Singapore Scout Association (SSA) will be taking part in the Yellow River Segment of next year’s Chingay Parade (19th -20th Feb 2010). SSA would be fielding some 80 members as part of the 400-member contingent formed by other youth members as well as ex-offenders.
Lasting for about 20 minutes, the Yellow River is one of the most important human civilisations in Asia and it symbolises “Forward looking and advancing life with great vibrancy”. This is in line with the objective Yellow Ribbon Project where we seek community support to give deserving ex-offenders a second chance in life and so they can break the stigma and look forward once again. In addition, the strength of the Yellow River is also what we would like to see in the reintegration efforts and hope that it will travel thousand miles benefiting countless who seek to return to the society.
Participants will aid to create this great yellow wave of about 360m along the parade route. They will be holding huge yellow cloths to create the giant waves. Each cloth can represent a huge yellow ribbon and when the river flows open, performers (PA) will then run in formation for their performances.
