Our Bonding Day at Happenstance Cafe happened on the 3rd of October 2019.
It was the first time in the new academic year that members of ALS were officially gathered. Other than meeting some members during weekly volunteering sessions, most of us met for the first time.
Despite the slight awkwardness at the beginning, we warmed up as we cooed at the dogs our fellow members had brought along to the dog friendly cafe.
While we ordered and waited for our food, the committee members initiated some games to liven up the mood and get the conversations going among us. By the time our food arrived, all of us have gotten comfortable with one another and were enjoying ourselves.
The dogs that our fellow members had brought were also having fun with each other despite the occasional conflict. Time flies when you are having fun, it was soon time for everyone to leave.
Despite the short amount of time we spent bonding, many of us had made several friends with promises to volunteer together.
All in all, I can confidently say all of us enjoyed this bonding session and had a really fruitful time together.
