Multicultural awards on Feb. 2

Langley’s International Festival Society has announced that MP Mark Warawa, Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese and Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender will attend the third annual multicultural gala dinner and awards evening.

It takes place on Saturday, Feb. 2, at 6 p.m. at the Fort Langley Golf and Country Club, located at 9782 McKinnon Cres., Langley.

The celebration recognizes individuals and organizations for their great work for promoting equality and diversity in our community. Last year, Muriel Arnason Library, Langley Community Services Society and Brandon Gabriel were the winners.

Muriel Arnason Library was awarded in ‘Innovative Projects’ category for its outstanding contribution to diversity in the community. Spirit of Diversity award was given to Langley Community Services Society for its numerous multicultural services and programs to the families, and Gabriel was awarded Ambassador of Diversity for demonstrating significant leadership in the community.

This year, there are a number of nominations for the awards, and it will be very tough for the judges to pick the winners.
