This year’s Canada Day event was one for the books!
On Monday, July 1, 2019, the newcomers and Armenian Family Support Services’ members gathered at the Fairview Library to spend the day alongside their family and friends, celebrating the way all Canadians do with food, fun, and games.
RCMP Constable Kegham Bayrakdarian came along and took pictures and spoke to everyone in attendance, while other representatives and members of public office shared inspiring words with the crowd and encourage community engagement. We’d also like to give special thanks to long-time supporters of AFSS MPP Aris Babikian and Councillor Jim Karygiannis, and a new friend, MPP Vincent Ke. In addition, a very big heartfelt thank you to Mr. Vasken Keshishian for taking the beautiful photos and Silva Baberian for preparing the delicious food!
In particular, we celebrated three young individuals who have accomplished unbelievable things since their arrival in the GTA. This allowed the community not only to applaud their hard work but also to recognize their dedication and resilience, setting an excellent example for the next generation of young teens to come!
This project was funded by the Government of Canada, and had capitalized on pursuing the atmosphere of support and civic engagement alongside family fun, and the overall celebration of our beloved country of Canada!
