Community/Syrian Refugees Potluck Picnic: Wed Jul 13

On July 13th Mayne Island will host 160 government assisted Syrian refugees from Victoria to a day of festivities at Dinner Bay Park from noon to 5 pm.

The pot luck picnic starts at noon and will be a time for the Syrian to celebrate the end of Ramadan with the Mayne Island Community. Food contribution should be vegetarian as Halal meat will be provided. Please contact Pat Gasston at (250) 539-5519. Lot of fun activities for the whole family.

We are also raising $20,000 to help with ESL classes for our new Syrian neighbours. Donations can be made by cheque written out to St. Mary Magdalene with "refugees" written at the bottom. These can be dropped off at the church, at Gulfport Free Mail, or at the designated table at the picnic.

For further information please contact Vicki Turay
