Winter Solstice at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens + Roundhouse + elsewhere
I usually help organize a team social for attending the Winter Solstice events at Dr. Sun Yat Sen Gardens – but this year I must attend AGM and Christmas Party at Joy Kogawa House.

Event organizer Naomi Singer is an incredible arts advocate and organizer. She was one of my fellow award recipients for the BC Community Achievement Award in 2008.
