We are pleased to inform you that the 2016 Chinese New Year Celebration Event will be held on February 14, 2016 (Sunday) from 11.00 am to 4.00 pm at the Richcraft Recreation Complex, 4101 Innovation Drive in Kanata. All communities are invited to join us for Chinese cultural displays, a lion dance performance, entertainment, family games, food fest and lucky draws.
The Chinese New Year Event in 2014 was very well-received and attracted thousands of people from the community to celebrate it with us. Riding on the success of the previous year, we are expecting an even larger attendance in 2016.
This annual celebration event is organized by the Kanata Chinese Seniors Support Centre (KCSSC), a non-profit organization, with the aim of bridging communities through community events like celebrating Chinese New Year and other festivals.
KCSSC is one of the most active seniors’ communities in Kanata. Since its inception in 2012, we have been rendering support to Chinese seniors and their families in Kanata and surrounding areas to adapt and integrate into the mainstream. KCSSC has also been actively promoting altruism among our seniors through community and volunteer work, like regular visits to seniors’ residences, the EPIC Walk for Cancer Care, Cleaning the Capital, and others, so that our seniors can experience the joy and satisfaction of being able to help others.
We are also recruiting youth volunteers for this event. Please contact Wen Jean Ho at 613-4403788 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are available at the door: $10/Adult $5/10-18 Free/9 and under
