Yubiao writes the following poem about their successes in the past year:
The hearts of kind people are boiling in the hot summer.
Our unyielding footprints are left in green farmlands…
Remember our tears falling for rights
Remember our courage fighting for votes
Remember our unity in the local police station
Remember our joy electing the top 10 good daughters-in-law
Remember our warm hearts for donation
Remember our solemnity in memorial ceremony
Remember our laughs in the farms
Remember our excellent performances in temple fairs
Remember our delight in extra meetings
Remember our endeavors and sweat
