After more than two years, Richmond Multicultural Community Services (RMCS) celebrated Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas in person on Friday, October 28 at Caring Place. It was a very well organized event. This major South Asian festival, popularly known as the Festival of Lights, was very well attended.
It was great to see Mayor Malcolm Brodie, along with Councillors Bill McNulty and Andy Hobbs join in the festivities. Also, both of our Richmond Members of Parliament , Parm Bains (Steveston –Richmond East) and Wilson Miao (Richmond Centre) joined a very diverse audience. Richmond South Centre MLA Henry Yao and Richmond East –Queensborough MLA Aman Singh also took the time to attend. The entertainment and delicious food made this festive occasion very enjoyable. I would like to commend RMCS staff and management for doing an excellent job in organizing this popular event.
