A Celebration of the Multiculturalism in our community of Apple Greene Park was held this past August long weekend. We invited all the residents of the Apple Green Complex as well as neighbours to attend the cultural pot luck luncheon. It was an all ages event with activities for everyone with food, music, activities and the opportunity to meet someone new to them. Attendees played a know your neighbour game to get people mingling and socializing. Posters were put up with basic greetings and salutations from seven different languages that are prominent in the community. Everyone could try speaking in a language that was not their own. People were also encouraged to write a personal greeting to share with everyone. The children were provided with bubbles to see who could produce the biggest or most bubbles at a time. As the weather had been so hot lately, as was the day, we provided deli platters with buns and cold beverages and water. The kids were especially thankful for the pool to cool them down, yet some of the older attendees needed to stay indoors to keep cool.

We believe the best people to effect change in a community are the ones within it. And when we can make money less of an issue in doing so, it allows so many more kinds of ideas to shine.
