During the luncheon, CEM gave away special Laisee to five eldest seniors to show the company’s care. Later, CEM distributed Laisee and souvenirs to the participating seniors. During the luncheon, CEM Ambassador Team members and the senior citizens performed several classic songs respectively. CEM Ambassadors Team members also arranged Q&A on energy saving and safety as well as interesting games to impart knowledge of daily household energy conservation to participants, making the event more fun.
