Double Ninth Festival. On the morning of October 11th, as the Double Ninth Festival approached, members of the Municipal Committee and Deputy Mayor Wang Jun accompanied by Civil Affairs Bureau Director Yu Anlin and He Lixi and Office Director Ren Xiangjing went to Ningguo Garden [a residential community] and personally visited centenarian Cheng Yanchun who is 103 years old this year and currently the oldest person in our city.

Wang Jun expressed holiday greetings to the elderly Cheng Yanchun and asked about her, presenting her with a visiting gift. He inquired in detail about the elderly person’s diet, everyday life, and health, repeatedly urging her family members and related people to be sure to respect the elderly, care for the elderly, and to help the elderly peacefully enjoy their later years.

Wang Jun stressed that honoring the elderly, caring for the elderly, respecting the elderly, and providing for the elderly is a traditional virtue of the Chinese people as well as a shared responsibility of the entire society. All of society must promote this traditional virtue, bring about an atmosphere/norm of respecting and honoring the elderly, and be concerned with these lives of these elderly in their late years, so that they can always feel the Party and government’s warmth and have their lives in their later years be increasingly blessed/happy.

At present, the number of centenarians in our city has reached 4 people. During the Double Ninth Festival, the Civil Affairs Bureau along with the sub-district Party Committees and governments of villages such as Heban, Xijin, Wangxi, and Nanji carried out a campaign of visits, with the Ningguo community forum and other social organizes also one after another launching activities visiting the centenarians.
