It's the time of year again! Pumping out a little more time and energy into making our Carnival Fundraiser a success. This year we donated photobooth as well as built the clown game, the latter which was as popular as I had hoped it would be! Tonnes of games, BBQ and Coffee, Book Sale, Silent Auction, Cake Walk, and running around on a gorgeous sunny evening with all your friends. I miss and loved these school events as a kid, running around high on candy and winning handfuls of little prizes, totally some of my favourite memories.
Oh, Harvest Fest, how I looked forward to you every year! The fire fighters serving canapes, the strung lights, the generosity of the raffles prizes, the abundance of delicious food, and of course the mechanical bull. It is such an incredibly fun event, but beyond the fun is the Delta Firefighter's heartfelt cause to support the Delta R.E.A.C.H. Childhood and Youth Program that has been in place since 1959. This year's cause:
Our primary beneficiary for this year is Delta Reach Child and Youth Development Society. Harvest Festival will raise money to help them finalize their Capital Campaign to raise money to complete a Child Development Centre in the heart of Delta.
Since 1959 Reach Society has been making a difference in the lives of children with special needs and their families. Building a child development centre in the heart of the community will give more children at all stages of childhood better access to the critical services they need, and link families to other community services more efficiently and effectively.
The new Reach Centre replaces Ladner Kinsmen House at 47th avenue and neighbours the Ladner Pioneer Library, Memorial park, Delta Secondary School, Ladner Community Centre and other community services, creating a network of community supports working together to benefit children of all ages and their families..
I love being part of this small community where everyone knows each other and is always willing to provide support where it is needed. This event is just once terrific example of how much we can do as a community when we all pitch in.
Had one last shoot to check off my list the evening before my Cali weekend getaway, the photobooth for the kids' Spring Fair! I can't take too much credit for the backdrop, I put it together, but all the elements were created and ordered and delivered thanks to the two organizers, Colleen + Lee-Ann! Enjoy a few select images from our successful fair!
It's hard to believe it's been a whole year since Project Bloom 2013! This year I was in charge of hosting the Photobooth. The backdrop was a collaboration between Our Little Flower Company and myself which turned out absolutely perfect!
A very well-behaved Little Malcolm joined me and the 150+ guests in the festivities. Laughter, tears and delicious food were enjoyed by all!
