All of the performances warmly welcomed and entertained the audience while encouraging individuals to avoid or quit smoking.
Director of the Office of Military Education and Training, Kuo-liang Chen, expressed, “It’s my honor to be able to promote anti-smoking outside of the boundaries of Tamkang University and spread it throughout the homes of Tamsui.” President of the Tamkang University Lions Club and third-year student from the Graduate Institute of European Studies, Yi-ren Huang, stated, “I hope this activity can really have a positive impact that can help people say no to smoking. I also look forward to using a diverse number of methods to educate the public on the negatives of smoking.” Three-year student of the Department of Mass Communication, Yu-han Ceng, stated, “The point of this activity is to collaborate with the John Tung Foundation to spread the message of anti-smoking. I hope the message is accepted by the public for the sake of impressionable children that are unaware of the risks of this bad habit. I believe this is a very meaningful event.”
