Event: Summer Event for Seniors
August 6, 2022
The VOICE arranged an outdoor gathering at Edworthy Park on Saturday, 07 August 2021, with immigrant seniors from multiple ethnic communities who shared their experiences dealing with the COVID situation for the last 18 months. Many distinguished citizens and leaders joined seniors —the presence of Hon. Muhammad Yaseen, Associate Minister of Immigration and Multiculturalism, Councillor George Chahal, Ward-5, and Councillor Jyoti Gondek, Ward-3, was notable. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the seniors and community members. Many of them described the gathering as a supportive outdoor re-connecting experience of culture in the post-pandemic environment. The event was successful, and we received appreciation for good food, people and music- thanks to sponsors and volunteers.
We thank all our guests who attended the event, our amazing volunteers who worked hard to make this event a success, and the sponsors without whom it would not happen.
