A Bar-B-Q for Belarus!

Yesterday Tracy and Pat Yuille (seen below) held a BBQ for everyone at their home near Lansdowne.

They invited all members of Canadian Aid for Chernobyl because they wanted everyone to meet Tolik and Sveta who they had brought to Canada for a visit from Belarus.  Tolik and Sveta host Pat and Tracy when they have traveled to Belarus with CAC and they wanted to return the favour.  Here are Tolik and Sveta looking at pictures with Nadia Nielsen of Brockville.

The weather was perfect and everyone had a wonderful time.  From the BBQ’d burgers and dogs right through to the campfire sing along!

The children from Belarus really enjoyed the opportunity to spend some time together.  Being able to communicate easily is a luxury they don’t all have day to day!  Here Ihar and Ivan enjoy a sunny visit.

Of course the adults all enjoy spending some leisure time with the kids as well.

I think some of the kids spent the whole time in the pool!  No shortage of fun when there is water involved on a sunny day!

This is exactly why these children come to Canada … fresh air, healthy food and sunshine!

Our summer with the children is off to a great start, and thanks to Tracy & Pat we got to enjoy some of it together.  Thanks for the great hospitality!
