We recently had a cooperative meeting. We had delayed the 2011 cooperative meeting because we had a lot of work at the end of the year.
Before the meeting started, everyone got together and sang the choral song “Red East,” which created a festive atmosphere. This was soon followed by the host’s artillery sound, announcing the start of the meeting.
Soon after, Yang Yun Biao, who is in charge of the agriculture cooperative society, gave a speech, and then the wine shop people and other members also made a report. At the very end, the principal (actually a retired principal, who now works with the agriculture cooperative society, but everyone still calls him the principal) announced the bonus plan. This year's bonus money is coming with the purchase of agricultural resources.
At the same time, we also opened our “loving heart” inventory room, so that each community’s member could pick his or her own clothes, five per person. These clothes are needed as welfare sent to the members. The clothes are inexpensive because we do not have much money, but the members are still very happy about it. Watching them walk down the stairs with their faces full of joy, I felt really happy. The image was very warm. The smiles we brought to them - if this is not joy, than what is it?
