3:30 pm on the December 1st, 2017, 30 student volunteers from AIA took the school bus to the Nordica to start their two-days volunteering work.
When we arrived in Nordica, the unexpected crowd shocked us. Even being as a relatively experienced organizer, I still felt kind of nervous to work in event at this scale. As the leader of the student volunteers, I was worried that our volunteers would be attracted by the fun Christmas fair and forget what are they here for.
Fortunately, even under the big temptation of delicious food, creative little crafts and eye-catching shows, our volunteers still fully focused on their jobs with single hearted devotion.
From 5 p.m to 9 p.m, four volunteer’s groups rotated in different area of works. Under huge pressure from escalating visitors, all the student volunteers from AIA were able to remember their positions and concentrated on their jobs properly and effectively.
We could really feel the charisma of Christmas Fair at Nordica once we arrived there. 34 vendors from various countries were showing their best: delicious food (hamburger, rice with roasted pork belly, Mexican food, hot coco, gingersnap), creative and artistic crafts (bamboo crafts, wooden crafts, clay, glasswork) and pretty Christmas decorations (necklace, hairpin, rings).
This exciting Christmas Fair at Nordica will continue until 2 December. Additionally, the music band from AIA (Chen Anyangzi, Yang Xinye, Liu Gulei, Tan Wenqianyuan) will bring on a wonderful performance on the afternoon of 2 December. We sincerely invite all the parents and student to join in!!
