After 13 years of running our COMMUNITY BBQ we’re forced to cancel it this year due to some understandable complications at West Island College. With their current renovations and non-access to the school or electricity it seemed like the wisest decision.
We have welcomed almost 800 people in recent years, have been sponsored by some awesome community partners/businesses, and staffed by approx. 70 volunteers.
BreakCity dance school summed up the ethos of this great event when they recently told us that one of the reasons they love performing at our BBQ is because, though it welcomes so many people, it still feels like an intimate family gathering! We’ve made strides to engage people more as the event has grown so we love hearing this kind of feedback.
FALL LAUNCH PARTY coming!
Fall is like a brand new season for us. We kick off ALPHA and Youth, groups restart or launch, a new teaching series shapes our minds and hearts, and more.
Just after Labor Day we will celebrate this transition for all Westsiders and create an environment that welcomes our family, friends, and neighbours.
The FALL LAUNCH PARTY will include a special kick off Sunday gathering, a new teaching series, and a PARTY-BBQ-CORN ROAST following the gathering. Stay tuned for more news and promo.
