On Friday November 11 from 3 – 5 pm we hosted our first Family Games afternoon. Between 40 and 50 people attended – mostly families with elementary aged kids. They played board and card games together and the event was a success. A few parents emailed to thank us for the event and another attendee told me that walking home they realized one of the families was a neighbour and have arranged for the teenage child to babysit!
Granville Island Toy company on Granville at 71st loaned us 11 games to play and the Marpole library loaned us 3 board games from their collection. Several people also brought their own games to share. We also got some decks of cards from the casino, and a book of card games from the library.
Due to the success we are in the process of arranging for events in Jan/Feb/March as the insurance covers 12 monthly events.
Thank you for the grant! We are looking forward to the next gathering.
