Garry Point Co-op in Steveston held a Community BBQ on Saturday, August 26th. We shared our heritages by bringing food from our countries, cultures or childhoods, along with burgers and hot dogs. There was SO much great food to be tried! The kids enjoyed water play, a bouncy castle, playdough and chalk and craft stations, bubble gum blowing contest, skipping and hula hoops challenges and a scavenger hunt. The adults also joined in on the games and participated in a photo booth and a “human scavenger hunt” where they had the opportunity to get to know their neighbours on a more personal level. After dinner we were entertained by a great band and had an amazing day together. Many thanks to Richmond Cares/Richmond Gives, and the Vancouver Foundation for their generous grant!

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.
