    Due to a high chance of rain, this event has been rescheduled from Saturday, June 11th to Saturday, July 16th. If you previously RSVP'd and can no longer attend, please contact info@faclbc.ca. Thank you!

    The sunshine is out, the birds are chirping, summer is finally here.

    Come join us for a picnic in the park on Sat, July 16 from 12:30 - 3:30pm.  This will be an informal event to reunite our community and reconnect! +1s and children are more than welcome.

    This will be potluck style - bring something for yourself and share with 5-6 people. To help reduce waste, you are encouraged to bring your own tupperware/cups.  But we’ll have extras on our end if you forget.

    If you have a frisbee or other park games, you’re encouraged to bring them too!

    Please RSVP so that we have a better sense of numbers.  See you there!
