In the past months, we finished 8 sessions for this project in Princess Margaret Secondary School and Fraser Heights area. The topics were about housing, family relationship and education. Each session had a unique topic,but those topics were logically relative and matched our project content -- dealing with housing issues correctly. For young people, which was a better choice, renting an apartment, investing a property or living with parents? In the course of discussing and experience sharing, we found it was important to maintain a good relationship with parents and family.

Qi Day is an organized event founded in 2016 by Jacob Larmour and Caroline MacGillivray to promote awareness and increase educational opportunities for the general public to learn about the healing aspects of Qi (Life Force Energy) and TCM. Over the past 3 years, we have introduced and supported over 1,000 people with classes, treatments and information. We would love to have you come and join us for this special version of Qi Dance as we celebrate movement from the ancient practice of Qigong as well as you own free-form version to dive in deeper.
We rented Pinewood Leisure Centre's gym, hosted a potluck party for our neighbours from the community. Over 25 family attended with yummy treats.There were two neighbours even brought their own cooker to make everyone three courses meal on the spot. We had invited the performers of Semiahoo Jazz Duo playing festive live music for everyone. Kids had fun at the arts and craft station. We also had some balls and matts out for them to play. We created a price draws for every family to bring home a little gift such as tote bag, markers, stickers, puzzle box etc.
Our community held a family barbeque to promote the Block Watch program and provide an opportunity for our neighbours to interact and get to know each other. Knowing who your neighbours are is key to a safer community.
The event was well attended with more that half of our neighbour residence represented. The RCMP participated with two Auxiliary Constables and the City of Richmond Block Watch Coordinator in attendance.
Overall a very successful event made possible through the generous grant provided by the NSG organization.
