Subject: Thank you for joining us in the 43rd Chinatown Spring Festival Parade

Dear ISSofBC staff, clients, students and friends,

A big thank you to everyone who braved the rain and the cold yesterday to take part in the Chinese New Year parade in Chinatown!

Over 80 ISSofBC staff, clients, management and board members – many with their family and friends – came, and with good cheer and great energy, showcased the ISSofBC team spirit, raising our profile in the community, as the ensuing media coverage showed.

A lot of work went into organizing our participation in this high-profile Vancouver event, and special thanks go to Chris Stephenson, George Mohan, Sane Vatougios (and her husband John), Shanshan Wu, Veronica Lee, Gesow Azam, Karen D’Souza, Tessie Madayag, Leena Eisheith, Pat Lee, Eric Zulaybar, Abdul Fatah Samim and Elmir Ismayilov.

For those who participated and would like to relive the event, and for everyone else whose who’d like to see the action, below are links to photos and video for your enjoyment:

Again, thanks to all for a memorable day!
