Dear members,

Thanks for the good year,
It’s now time to pass the torch,
Signing off with love.

AGM has come and gone, and the very capable committee for 2017/18 will take over the running of CUMSA soon. Thank you so much for your support this past year, from enthusiastically participating in our various events, to setting up your own exciting Student Interest Groups. My wonderful committee has always been dedicated to serving you, the members of the Society, and we hope that you have had the opportunity to benefit – be it through reconnecting with fellow Singaporeans, or through reliving home food experiences. As long as we have brought a smile to your face, or the warmth of community to your heart, our mission would have been complete, and our work, satisfied.

We are truly grateful for your company, and look forward to seeing all of you around!

With love and thanks,
CUMSA Committee 16/17
Michelle, Bridget, Chia Wei, Jing En, Christiane, Jasmine, Hui Min, Han Liang, Kelvin, Darrel, Yibin
