The next few months are a time for great celebrations! We just had Canada Day, and we’ve marked the end of Ramadan with Eid al-Fitr. Many people take this time of year to enjoy holidays in nature with their families.
BCIS has reason to celebrate, too. On Aug. 24, we will have an open house at our office (Bay 2, 500 Cassils Rd E), where we will mark our sixth anniversary of serving clients. BCIS would like to invite everyone to stop by our office from 12-3 p.m. for a barbeque and tours. Meet our staff, and some of our amazing volunteers!
Another celebration we have coming up is the annual Alberta Culture Days, something BCIS has been heavily involved with for years. Watch for us during the Brooks celebrations and enjoy the Taste of Nations event at the Lakeside Leisure Centre in late September – we have something amazing lined up for this year!
My name is Gurpreet. Originally from India, I have been living in Brooks for the past 18 years. I am the Volunteer Coordinator at BCIS. Whether you would like to learn about volunteering in Canada, give few hours of your time to help others, or learn about newcomer issues, I am happy to discuss whatever opportunities BCIS might have available.
