2nd Annual FVLC Labour Day Picnic a complete success!
Hundreds of labour activists, their families and friends gathered at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford for the 2nd Annual FVLC Labour Picnic on Monday, September 11, 2011. Volunteers served up fresh corn-on-the-cob and grilled hot dogs for those who came to celebrate while kids were entertained with sack races, face-painting and clowns making balloon animals. Labour and community organizations set up tents and had lots of free give-away items.
Labour Council Executive Board Member Tamara Weber, a BCGEU member and the Council's Director of Communications helped organize this year's event and thanked all the volunteers who joined with her to put on the picnic. “It's so good to see so many people come out to our second annual picnic - and the weather has been fabulous!”
