The Kennedy Administration put on an awesome show at Ralph O'Connor United Church in Canmore, Alberta to raise funds to go towards supporting the Ngelelo family's settlement process in Canada. Fun was had by all! The music was amazing. Inspired by the tunes being played in the church, the family got us all up dancing:) Much fun, food, drink and beautiful views of the mountains were shared by all after the concert! Thank you to the band and to the church for making such a wonderful event possible.
It was a truly special experience to share Easter with the family. Our sponsor group members and children gathered in a local church, played games, did crafts, shared in a traditional Easter meal and hosted an Easter egg hunt for the kids...it was a ton of fun for us all!
No one could have prepared us for the moment of finally meeting the Ngelelos after months of preparation and anticipation. Our children dancing and singing O’Canada as we waited for three hours at the international gate of the Calgary Airport for them to appear…. finally, the doors opened and….all of our lives were changed for the better.
We're very happy to be able to share with you that our family will be arriving in Calgary on Thursday, February 25th.
Much, much more to follow in the coming days :)
Still no confirmation on an arrival date for our family. Great to see people helping out with in-kind donations of household items. Thank you! There are still a few things we are looking for - hop over to our Signup Genius page and take a look. [ Edit: outdated Signup Genius link removed ]
