Community Welcome Day
Sunday May 15, 2016  1pm - 7pm (6 Hours )

We are thrilled to announce our first Ross Creek Welcome Day for our community and for new immigrant and refugee families. We hope you join us for a family fun day where everyone is welcome!

Nature Hikes, Plant-a-Pumpkin, Art Activities, Camp Day, Storytelling, Live Music and more!

Community Potluck at 5 pm. Bring a dish, break bread together (no peanut products please)!

Admission is by donation and proceeds are going to the The Canning Area Interfaith and Community Refugee Support Group (in partnership with the Port Williams United Baptist Church), which is raising funds to bring a Syrian family into Canning!

In the fall, we’ll have a follow-up harvest day where people can come and get their pumpkins and some of our produce in time for Halloween!

We are looking for donations and volunteers for:

Buses to transport new Canadians in Halifax and the Valley to and from Ross Creek,
Interpreters (Arabic, Farsi or Dari, Nepali),
Seeds for the garden,
Food and drink,
Musicians to play
Volunteers to help us plan and make the day incredible!
Friends and neighbours to come for the day and celebrate a new Canada. Everyone welcome!

Please email to let us know how you’d like to help out!

You can also donate and specify that you want to help us make these welcome days great!
