The Triumph grant is in full swing with the first community celebration honouring the staff at Nesters and Island Pharmacy for all they went through for us during the darkest two years of the pandemic. Their worlds were turned upside down in very different ways and they were navigating new rules at a fast pace in order to serve community.
We’re celebrating them with a big outdoor party at the Commons. A lantern parade, an 80s dance party with DJ Tim G, juggling, flow dancing, face painting, food, drinks and a time to relax. A time to be appreciated by community for coming through for us during a difficult time.
Workshops are Monday August 15 – Thursday August 18 from 5:30-8:30pm at the Gabriola Arts & Heritage Centre. You can register to build a lantern at gabriolatriumph.ca and you can find out more about the celebration.
The celebration is Saturday August 20th at the Gabriola Commons from 7-10pm.
