Changsha Evening News on January 29th (all-media reporter Deng Yanhong) At noon on the 29th, a New Year’s group meeting to pay tribute to sanitation workers was held in Castroni, Dingding Xiangwei, Gao Qiao market. Nearly 80 representatives of sanitation workers gathered together to feel the rich flavor of the 2024 Spring Festival in advance. The organizer of the banquet is Zhang Shangyou, a 53-year-old chairman of Dingding Xiangwei Company and a native of Liuyang, who is also the "Changsha Good Man" in 2021. In 2008, he witnessed the hardships of sanitation workers sweeping snow and deicing, and decided to invite sanitation workers to express their respect and gratitude on the eve of the Spring Festival every year. This year is the 15th consecutive year.
"lucky strike, Liuyang black goat, genuine braised pork …" At 12 o’clock noon, the banquet officially began, and a series of dishes with all colors and flavors were served in turn, with a total of 14 courses, including the main course and cold dishes, which were sweet, sour, spicy and salty, taking care of the tastes of sanitation workers from all corners of the country. There were 8 tables for the New Year’s party on that day, and all the invited people were sanitation workers who worked near the Gao Qiao market and whose hometown was all over the country. After the banquet began, Zhang Shangyou took tea instead of wine and went to the table to express his gratitude and respect to the sanitation workers. "The 10 main courses mean’ perfect’ and wish the sanitation workers a complete life. Due to the limited space, only nearly 80 sanitation workers attended the banquet, but we prepared a New Year gift package for the sanitation workers working nearby. " Zhang Shangyou told reporters.
Lu Yinfen, 51, is one of the sanitation workers invited to the banquet. She is from Taojiang, Yiyang, and both her husband are engaged in cleaning in Gao Qiao market. She told reporters that she was very happy to be invited to the banquet. "Now the city is getting more and more beautiful, and everyone is paying more and more respect to sanitation workers, which makes us very happy."
The reporter learned that Zhang Shangyou first hosted a banquet for sanitation workers in 2009. At that time, his shop was not as big as it is now. At that time, eight nearby sanitation workers participated. In 2008, he was deeply impressed by the images of sanitation workers sweeping snow and deicing in Gao Qiao market, and he also benefited from doing business there. That banquet made Zhang Shangyou feel the hard work and kindness of sanitation workers. Since then, he has had an idea: to hold a reunion dinner every year to thank the hard-working sanitation workers nearby.
In the past 15 years, the sanitation workers near the market have changed one after another, but every year on the eve of the Spring Festival, Zhang Shangyou invites them to have a New Year reunion dinner. His store in Gao Qiao market also provides 100 love breakfasts to nearby sanitation workers and the elderly every day.
The reporter noticed that this year’s group meeting, Zhang Shangyou let his youngest son also participate in the activity, and let his youngest son send the New Year gift to every sanitation worker. "I want young people to realize that it is not easy for sanitation workers, and our love activities will continue."
