Dim Sum luncheon “meet and greet”- meeting locals and immigrant communities.
What could be better than a delicious meal with friends? How about the opportunity to make some new friends? This is a good opportunity for new comers to meet locals who are active in different levels of local government and community organizations. I hope this luncheon will facilitate exchanges, dialogues, mutual learning, networking between individuals as well as between organizations, particularly to enhance understanding and support of the immigrant communities.
Past participants includes Members of Parliament, Members of Legislative Assembly, City Councillors, School Board Trustees, Park Board Commissioners, community representatives, community workers, teachers, new immigrants, and even a lord from England (Unlike Conrad Black, he is among us and you would have never guessed who that person is), etc.
There will be a variety of delicious choices to choose from, including an array of vegetarian and seafood dishes. Invite your friends, relatives, and neighbours along with you.
