Chilliwack makes the connection

Today I attended Chilliwack Connect at the First Avenue Alliance Church

The promoters and organizers should truly pat themselves on the back. It was wonderful – so many people from all walks of life enjoying the talents of others.

The food was excellent and the music fabulous.

When Patsy left the stage to serenade several people in the audience, she brought a tear to my eyes. I have seen some of these people at the local shelter, but never had I seen someone tip back their baseball caps and sing love into their eyes, (well done, Patsy).

Also, watching people arrive for their free haircuts was so captivating. Many arrived really needing more than a little hair or beard work, the transformation of not only their hair but their countenance was amazing. There were also pedicures and lots of  other free stuff. I heard a local spa, Undine’s, closed their doors on Saturday so they could provide these  much needed services.

To each one who gave in their own way, I say a big thank you. Yes, Chilliwack is not only the Greenheart of B.C., but the heart of B.C. I am so grateful to live in such a community.
