Celebrating the Festival of Light: Diwali

LiLi and Janeen celebrated Diwali with the District of Mission and Mission Community Services Society. A fun evening filled with learning opportunities and connecting with the community. The evening kicked off with a delicious dinner donated by Save-On Foods and then entertainment from a variety of local groups including Bollywood dancers and a pipe band. Staff from the Mission Library joined the LiLi team to offer craft activities, including a Diwali celebration card adorned with glittering colors!

Several local businesses and organizations joined the festivities including; WorkBC, Cycling4 Diversity, SARA for Women, and the Wonder Women Society.

Don’t worry if you missed the Mission celebration, because you’re welcome to attend a Diwali celebration in another FVRL community. Check out the FVRL Events page to see when the Township of Langley’ Muriel Arnason library and Maple Ridge Public library have their Diwali celebrations. Happy Diwali!
