Tuesday we celebrated the birthday’s of children in the local “Organization for Families with Invalid Children” or as we prefer to call “The Day of the Angel”! This is sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Brockville. It is a fun party with lots of games and participation by the Canadians.
Yesterday we held our 4th annual birthday party for the children of the Chausy Orphanage. Again this year it was hosted by Corbin Evans, a grade 8 student at TISS Intermediate school. Corbin raises the funds for this party through various means throughout the year including bottle drives and Crispy Creme donut sales. Here is Corbin and his Mom, Jennifer, dancing at the party. Needless to say the party was a huge success.
Before we see a few more pictures from the party, I’ll back up to a couple of other activities from the day.
Today the village of Chausy held a celebration. They have created a new park and are planting trees to honour families and citizens. A family that we provided water for last year was included as the outstanding family in the Chausy region for 2019. CAC was honoured to be included by the family and asked to attend with them. Here is Dave and our driver/interpreter Anna along with the family with 4 of their 6 children.
Dignitaries were also in attendance including the past
