Last year, we had our “Lantern Made of Recycled Materials Contest”, this year we were looking forward for another Christmas Decoration Making Contest out of recycled materials. This is one of the Environmental Enhancement activities/projects of our department. The decision to push through with the contest came in a little bit late because of budget issues. But it didn’t hinder us to create what we can make out of the used/recycled materials we can find at home or in the office.
The recycled soft drink bottles didn’t bring us to the final 4 entries last year, thus, this year we decided to make more use of papers, magazines, calendars found at the office. But making the Christmas tree structure is really one tough job. As much as we want to pay and have it made, we opted not, and asked my husband’s help to make the tree structure out of the recycled rolled paper tube (used to roll floor mats/linoleum), a broken plastic hula-hoop, some wire insulators and wrap them with papers. Galvanized wires were used to hold the layers in place. For, there is a height requirement of 5ft to 6ft, ours stands 5ft with an allowance of 1 foot for the star.

How time flies, it’s December once again, the merry month of the year because we are celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. And when this season comes, parties and merrymakings are all over the place.
And when there are parties, group presentations are there vying for the crown as the year’s champion. Are group are also preparing for such entertainment and we are currently looking for the right music to fit our retro theme. Thus, microphones for recording are one of the equipment for us to record our Christmas caroling to mix with our retro dance.
Everyone is very busy and excited for our coming Christmas party. Hope we all have a great time.
