Be The Change event draws a crowd

Earth's bounty and beauty celebrated at second annual dinner

About 45 people enjoyed the second annual Earth Day Community Pot Luck Dinner presented by the Mission “Be The Change” Action Circle on April 21.

Each person brought food and non-disposable plates and cutlery to the dinner at Fraser River Heritage Park where the picnic tables under the shelter were made festive with tablecloths, flowers and candles. The event demonstrated that a community can hold a celebration without generating mountains of garbage.

The participants met fellow citizens and enjoyed delicious food and good conversation as they celebrated Earth’s beauty and bounty.

Before the meal, diners were treated to musical entertainment by the talented young fiddler, Andy Kite.

Following the dinner, prizes for the Adopt-A-Block “Love Where You Live” competition were awarded.

First prize went to Billy and Macy Arnold; second to Life Skills Program students from Mission Secondary School and; Rachel Fischer earned third.
