Every fall, Albertans gather to celebrate the cultures that makes our province vibrant. Last year, there were over 900 events in more than 70 communities across Alberta during this special weekend. In Brooks, we're lucky to have some amazing events going on durig Alberta Culture Days, held this year Sept. 30 to Oct. 2.
The most popular event in Brooks each year is the Taste of Nations over at the Lakeside Leisure Centre, where people can sample foods from around the world. The event will run Saturday, Oct. 1, and BCIS has some amazing entertainment planned.
“My name is Argaw and I am a Settlement Counsellor here at BCIS. After arriving in Canada from Ethiopia with my family, I lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba for about two years and recently moved to Brooks. I look forward to providing you with sufficient information on the various volunteering opportunities at BCIS & the community so that you can become an active participant in our community.”
