The movie brought much laughter to the children and senior citizens who thoroughly enjoyed it besides indulging in GSC’s popular caramel coated popcorn and drinks. After the movie, all were treated to a lunch buffet. Adding to the Christmas mood, a team from The Touch Community led in some Christmas carols which prompted all present to sing along in unison. The fun-filled event ended with all given a beautifully wrapped Christmas gift each.
