The 2nd Rose Charities Canada Project Forum was held at the Creekside ‘Olympic Village’ Community Centre in Vancouver last week. It attracted around 80 people consisting of those with close Rose involvement to those just curious to know more about Rose projects. There was a pot-luck dinner which resulted in a groaning table of delicious food and drinks.
Each Rose project gave a short presentation on what they have accomplished this year and everyone had lots of time to network within groups.
