Thanks to the Vancouver Foundation through its Neighbourhood Small Grants, they inspired us to host the very first multicultural potluck dinner for our Gilpin community at Gilpin Elementary.
That evening we literally ate around the world from countries such as Japan, Korea, China, India, South Africa, Portugal, and more! To add to the festivities there were multicultural arts and crafts such as origami and flag making. In addition, there was multicultural performances: of Irish fiddle and dance; plus, children singing songs from Japan, China, and Mexico. It was an amazing fun filled evening that brought a community closer while learning more about each others’ culture and heritage.
