The greatest and most beautiful aspect of Canada is its diversity and atmosphere of inclusion. This great nation embraces all and provides a safe haven for everyone to achieve their dreams and goals. Here at Parkdale Cromdale, we feel that diversity is our greatest strength. We all have different ways in which we can contribute in building a strong, healthy and prosperous community. The diverse cultures in our community make us vibrant and unique. While we may come from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs, we all have a collective vision of peace, happiness and inclusion. We wanted to host an event that would celebrate all cultures and we decided to host a multi-cultural pot luck. We encouraged everyone to bring a dish that represented their culture. We had an amazing turnout with 14 different nationalities present at our event. There was rich dialogue about the importance of sharing and celebrating culture. There was a strong sense of community as we enjoyed a dinner made by different people in the community. We believe there is power, love and strength when we are all united. We want to thank all of our volunteers, every one who brought food and everyone that attended. Our next event is the “Taste of Parkdale Cromdale” on July 13 hosted at the Parkdale Cromdale Community League Centre. We are still looking for food vendors, performers and volunteers, for more information please e-mail us at email@example.com. We hope to see you there!
