Burnaby DUDES Club held our first gathering

On July 17, 2023
We held an Open House

We wanted to officially launch our Clubhouse and introduce ourselves to community

We had a BBQ.  More than 40 people and organizations attended
We had a Traditional Indigenous Opening Ceremony. We prepped, made and served
burgers, hot dogs, salads and dessert. People mingled and got acquainted
One participant commented: “DUDES were consummate hosts.
They were warm and attentive, and made us feel welcome in their space.”

We drew door prizes. We had a Traditional Indigenous Closing Ceremony.  People lingered and continued to mingle…
Our event would not have been possible
without support from:
Vancouver Aboriginal Community Policing Centre
Indigenous Neighbourhood Small Grants
