City of Pickering’s Advisory Committee on Diversity will be hosting the 2012 Heritage Day Celebration. This event promises to be a dynamic celebration of Pickering’s rich heritage and cultural diversity.
The event will take place on Saturday February 25, 2012 from 11 am to 6.00 pm in the Pickering Town Centre (Centre Court).
Pickering Islamic Centre will be setting up a booth with displays reflecting some Islamic art work and other exhibits that would be of interest to the visitors. Our volunteer corps would be at the booth welcoming visitors and responding to their curiosity.
Our participation in this event along with a diverse group of people showcasing their respective cultural and ethnic
background offers an opening for us to meet, chat and tell people about the richness of our own heritage and the splendoursof our culture closely tied with what we believe in — our faith.
As citizens, it is our civic responsibility to participate in such events that strengthen our bonds with other communities and provide others an opportunity to understand the significance of being a Canadian Muslim in this great country of ours.
