More than 1,500 NSmen and their families put on a display of flower power at Safra Jurong yesterday to break the Singapore record for the largest display of rolled paper roses. The participants of the SAFRA Family Fest! rolled a total of 3,850 paper roses over two weeks, resulting in a display measuring 2.4m by 2.2m - all in an effort to celebrate International Day of Families yesterday. The five colours of the roses represent the family values of care and concern, filial piety, communication, respect and commitment. The arrangement will be displayed at the club until the end of the June school holidays. Families at yesterday's event were treated to activities such as face painting, 3D art piece design and bouncy castles.
