Multicultural Celebrations

It was a busy night last night as Amanda and Andrea represented the Gardens at two events.

Amanda was at BEMIS Multicultural Homecoming 2014 Celebration Dinner. BEMIS helped fund our film screening in October.

Amanda writes “A big thank you to BEMIS for a very enjoyable evening celebrating Multicultural Homecoming on St Andrews Day. Thanks to all the musicians and performers, especially the Scottish traditional musicians, the Hong Loc Lion dancers and Indepen-dance performers, and Glasgow Dholis drummers.

I learned a new recipe too – Edinburgh Fog, very tasty!”

Andrea represented the Gardens at the National Sikh Banquet Celebration Event. The Gardens have worked closely with the neighbouring Gurdwara, most recently in the Gurdwara Gardening project. It was a fantastic night highlighting the works of the Glasgow Gurdwara since it opened last year.

Andrea says “It was a great evening, and really successful fundraising event for the Glasgow Gurdwara. There was a great variety of food, and it was fun to chat about which foods we liked best. I loved seeing the Guru Granth Sahib choir again after their wonderful performance at our Mandela Celebration in July.”

It looks like both events were a lot of fun. Now back to work, ladies!
