SAFTI MI celebrated its 12th Anniversary at the Sports Stadium on 28 Aug 07. The celebration kicked off with Comdt SAFTI MI, BG Jimmy Tan, delivering the anniversary speech followed by the presentation of long service awards. The excitement started when Comdt SAFTI MI flagged off the telematch games. More than 500 personnel were involved in the celebrations, participating in telematch games and cheering their teams. Despite the rain which threatened to dull our mood, the entertaining emcee and mascots kept our spirits high. The event at the stadium ended with the cake cutting and singing of the SAFTI MI Song.

Besides the event at the stadium, SAFTI MI also shared this celebration with 30 MINDS (Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore) residents. A special lunch, games and a karaoke session were organised for the residents. In addition, many generous SAFTIrians donated their hard earned money towards the MINDS organisation in a charity drive.

The celebration was a great success and achieved its objective of fostering camaraderie and esprit de corps amongst the SAFTI MI community.
