The theme of the 2013 Lunar New Year is one of prosperity and happiness. The mascot is a snake. On Tuesday, February 12, the Campbell River Immigrant Welcome Centre volunteers hosted a Lunar New Year extravaganza.
Events were conducted throughout the afternoon including an introduction to the Buddhist faith, questions and answers about Lunar New Year, a potluck dinner and entertainment.
Over one hundred and fifty people attended which gave Frank and I great opportunities to speak with some about the Baha’i Faith. The folks we spoke with recognized the common theme among faiths ~ obedience to God, love for one another, patience, humility and hope. It was a pleasure to be in such a purposeful environment.
Consider attending the function in 2014.
