Newcomers to Brooks over the past year were celebrated this weekend. The Brooks Local Immigration Partnership (LIP) held their first welcoming event on Jan. 28 at the Flex Hall in the Lakeside Leisure Centre. Those in attendance were treated to dance performances, food, and friendship. Local service providers were also on hand to let newcomers know how they can assist in navigating their new home.
Dignitaries were on hand to meet with the newcomers and offer greetings on behalf of the City of Brooks, County of Newell and Government of Canada. Popular with the kids were the face-painting table and balloon twister - not to mention BMO the Bear dancing with the kids!
RyKie Images & Events was proud to be part of this inaugural Brooks LIP event. Check out the YouTube link below for a taste of all the fun!
