Finding Home
Posted on June 27th, 2010 in Uncategorized. - 27 Comments

The Finding Home Initiative in association with Association of Neighbourhood Houses of BC hosted a project launch for our Elders Financial Abuse Awareness Dialogue Project at Heritage Hall in Vancouver. Over 60 community leaders from 20 different organizations participated.

Like the story of the Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing every culture has fables that teach people to be wary of con artists or people that might take advantage of you. To kickstart our project launch, storytellers from Punjabi, Afghan and Chinese communities told fables from their cultures. We learned about a tricky fox in Afghan culture, a monkey and two cats in Punjabi culture and a wolf & goats in Chinese culture.

Next we had a wonderful lunch made by our volunteer caterer Janine Dunns with food & door prizes donated by Spud, Trumps Bakery, Pane Formaggio, European Breads, Two Rivers Meat, Indian Life, Horizon Distributors, Spectrum, Simply Natural, Miller Spings, Santa Cruz, Emelia and Rogers.

Desert consisted of a cake with pictures of the different fables donated by the United Way of the Lower Mainland. During the cake cutting ceremony members of our Seniors Counsel gave thier good wishes for the project’s success in thier own languages and placed their words on coloured paper attached to toothpicks on the cake.

Next, we went to Heritage Hall’s rooftop to play an Afghan Egg-Fighting game. After all, every good picnic includes a game! Afghan Egg-fighting involves two people, each with a hard boiled egg, rubbing their egg against the other. Whoever’s eggshell breaks first loses. The winner, keeps both eggs and wins a prize. Thanks to Rogers and Spud for providing the prizes.

Finally, as we ate cake and drank tea and coffee we had door prizes, followed by a Punjabi senior singing a beautiful closing song.

Thanks to Michael Becker, Director of Communications at the United Way of the Lower Mainland for his communications expertise and taking fabulous photos. Check out the United Way’s blog about the event here: http://owlly/22NON

The Elders Financial Abuse Awareness Dialogue Project is funded by the Government of Canada New Horizons For Seniors Program.
