Last Month

Heritage Day was a complete success last month, celebrating different cultures food, drinks, desserts, clothing and performances. There were many different activities for children; including arts are crafts, face painting temporary tattoos, and a bouncy house.

We lucked out with incredible weather during Caribbean Carnival, which allowed many members from the community to join us at Galt Gardens to watch cultural acts, enjoy diverse foods, and kid’s activities such as face painting and a bouncy house. Needless to say, we cannot wait for next year!
