Celebrate With the Community

To celebrate with our communities, we have hosted an in-person community gathering on September 25 at Rocky Point Park. There are many things that Rocky Point Park offers and it has an accessible pathway, SkyTrain access and parking. The event is free and there is plenty to do for all ages.

We are glad to see so many of our community members again on September 25. A big THANK YOU to everyone who attended our gathering and celebrated International Week of the Deaf 2021 with a fun day of socializing, exciting games and dragon boating experience.
