(Last updated July 5th) with more new pictures

The CBA picnic was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came to support us! We had lots of fun and it was a very nice warm and sunny day. Thankfully, the mosquitoes did not really come out until it was time to go. Check out the slideshows of the pictures taken of the picnic below. As you can see, we had a lot of fun with the parent participation races like tug of war, three-legged race, jump rope, egg throw plus the kids got to create their own art. Thanks to Yantl Wagar, Karmen and Lee Lin Fu for organizing the fun and games and arts! Thanks also to the wonderful people who helped out at the picnic including Eva Ho, Lee Lin Fu, Gail and many others I may have missed. Thanks again for your support!

Thanks again to everyone for your enormous support and to all the volunteers who helped make this a success! It was not possible without you!

For those interested in more information on our Red Cross donation efforts, check out this post for the details.

(Updated April 14, 2009):

Almost a year after, Stockwell Day visited Beichuan, China to pay an emotional tribute to the victims killed by the devasting earthquake. Here’s the news article to CTV.ca. Also, here’s a link to the news video. One note regarding the Canadian donation of $75 million was the second largest to this effort. With that in mind, again, I’d like to thank everyone for their enormous support of our efforts towards the relief.

Thanks to our volunteers at the AimHi barbeque

I would also like to take this moment to thank all the wonderful volunteers who came to help out with the set up and clean up for AimHi’s community barbeque held on Sunday June 1st. Again, it’s amazing to witness the solid support of our members.

Reminder of June 22nd picnic

Just a quick reminder that the Prince George CBA will be holding a community picnic at Wilkins Park on Sunday June 22nd from 11:30am to 2pm. Cost is $2 per person and will cover food, drinks and snacks. There will be some fun filled games involving parental participation so get ready for some interesting competitions!
