CVMISS AGM and potluck supper

The Annual General Meeting of Comox Valley Multicultural Society will be held Sunday, Sept. 28, 4:30 p.m. at the Elks Hall at 231 Sixth St. in Courtenay. Among the itinerary will be the election of a new board for the upcoming term.

Following the meeting, the fall harvest family potluck will start at 6 p.m. The potluck is open to the entire community. It is not necessary to be a CVMISS member.

All that is asked is to contribute to the potluck theme by bringing a plate of food — enough for your family to share with others. Tea and coffee will be provided.

There will also be entertainment provided. Music, dance, culture-sharing and a few  members will share their experiences after landing in Canada.

“Learning from each other always is a right way to know and communicate better, please come out and enjoy a fun family potluck,” said CVMISS spokesperson Jin Lin in a press release. “Comox Valley Multicultural Society is an organization focused on multiculturalism. It provides a platform to bring people together. We respect people with different cultures, races and religions — let’s bring harmony and happiness to our community all together.” –CVMISS
