    Rain Barrel Fundraiser - March 30, 2014

    In support of World Water Day, Gifted People Services partnered with Rain Barrel Fundraising to raise money for our programs. It was a very successful day and many volunteers came to help us out.

    Ice Fishing Day - March 26, 2014

    In partnership with Chinese Anglers Sports Club of Canada, we took our families up to Lake Simcoe and went ice fishing! It was the first time kids saw the whole lake turned into an ice lake and we even drove on the surface of it! People from Chinese Anglers Sports Club of Canada taught our parents and kids how to ice fish, including drilling holes, tying bait. Although it was freezing cold and lost fishing rods, it turned out to be a fun day for our parents and children.
