Evergreen Club Celebrates Summer with Dumpling Making Day
24th July 2023
The Evergreen Club held a dumpling making day on 24th July to mark the summer break. The event was a great way for members to come together and learn about Chinese culture and tradition.
The club had been planning this day for weeks, as Dumplings symbolise good luck, wealth and prosperity in Chinese Culture, and everyone was excited to get started. Members divided in to groups and started making dumplings. As members worked, they shared stories about their families and cultures. Some members had never made dumpling before, but they picked things up pretty quickly. The members enjoyed eating the dumplings and talking about their experiences. They all agreed that it was a fun and educational event. In addition to being a fun and educational event, the act of making dumplings is a mindful activity that requires focus and concentration. The event helped to reduce isolation among members, as they were able to connect with each other and build relationships.
They all agreed that they would do it again next year. Making dumplings with your elders is a great way to connect with them and learn about their culture. It is also a fun and rewarding activity that can help to improve our wellbeing. So why not gather your family and friends, and get together to make some dumplings this summer?
