Residents of Grey and Bruce counties are invited to learn and celebrate the Hindu culture at a community open house on August 13th in Kincardine. The event is being hosted on behalf of the Swajan Samanvay Sanatan Centre, Municipality of Kincardine, Welcoming Communities Grey Bruce, and Grey Bruce Local Immigration Partnership (GBLIP). Everyone is welcome at the free event which runs from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Victoria Park in Kincardine.
The Hindu community in Grey Bruce is growing and is positively contributing to the region in several areas. The open house is an opportunity to ‘Embrace Diversity Through Dialogue’ and explore Hindu culture within the Canadian multicultural mosaic. The open house will allow the community to experience, celebrate, and learn more about Hindu culture and traditions. Participants can take part in Yoga and enjoy traditional Hindu food, music and dancing.
“Bruce County is an exciting place to live and work. Our GBLIP program is attracting new residents from diverse backgrounds and is doing a wonderful job at highlighting multicultural activities in our region,” said Bruce County Warden Janice Jackson.
Grey County Warden Selwyn ‘Buck’ Hicks echoed Warden Jackson, encouraging the community to come and enjoy the event. “A key part of being a welcoming community is creating opportunities for families and neighbours to come together, share traditions and learn from one another. What better way to meet your neighbours than to share in an exciting afternoon of great music and delicious food?” said Hicks.
