It was March 19, 2016 when my friends and I handed the very first welcome pack box to the very first new immigrant who came to meet us at Bakerite in Keewatin Street. It has been a year since our very first distribution, 10 distributions were held and more than 2,000 boxes were distributed in Winnipeg. This simple way of “community service” was one of the significant events of my 2016.
I was going through some old pictures saved in my laptop when I came across some pictures from 2012. Most of these pictures are taken while my Dad and Mom were here in Winnipeg with us. I suddenly missed them and wished that they were still here, especially now that another significant event is happening to our family in June plus my daughter is turning 7 in November.
