Good Neighbours Awards Banquet 2017

good-neighbours-awards-banquet-2017-1On May 11th, 2017 we attended the Good Neighbours Awards Celebration. The Good Neighbours Awards is an annual event hosted by the Association of Neighbourhood Houses of British Columbia (ANHBC). It’s an event that celebrates those wonderful people who who have made amazing contributions to the Neighbourhood Houses in their Vancouver communities.

The night was a lot of fun where both staff and volunteers got together and cheered and showed their support for the the Award recipients, of which there were many!

Our own Jennie Yuen and Crystal Chow were honored with awards for the Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House as well as Books for Me.

Fun Moment Snapshot: One of the funniest moments for me was when Jennie said, “It felt like the paparazzi were taking pictures of me with all the camera flashes going off when we were on stage!” 😀
